A recently published article in Holyrood Magazine reports favourably on how well Ms French and Mrs Barker have integrated use of iPads to enhance learning and teaching. They and their pupils were also commended at the Edinburgh Learning Festival on Friday 8th June and have been invited to present to Edinburgh Head Teachers in September. We are very pleased with how much has been achieved in school in a few short months but are still keen to hear – and learn from – your experiences thus far in using iPads at home.
We would be most grateful if you could complete the parent survey for Hull University, to conclude the initial reporting block for the project at this early stage of implementation. Staff at Hull University are preparing an interim report to present to all the pilot schools by the end of June, with a full report to be submitted to the Scottish Government in September. Therefore we would appreciate your completion of this Parent Survey by Friday 22nd June:
We also welcome your attendance at an informal session on Thursday 21st June 3.30-4.30pm or 5.30-6.30pm. Use this Doodle poll link if you are available to come along:
The pilot project will continue in the new session and we still seek to engage you in an ongoing dialogue, with opportunities to come to school next term. Following consultation with staff and, in response to feedback and suggestions already received from parents, we have taken the decision to keep the iPads in school during the summer holiday. This will enable us to maintain the devices, store them safely and make adjustments to configurations, ready for the new session in August. All iPads and chargers should be returned to school by Thursday 21st June please. If your child is leaving Sciennes, please return the iPad in its box with all cables.
Thank you very much for your time and support. Please feel welcome to contact me directly with any questions or comments or use our own online form
