Durrington High School has been lucky to receive 3 iPads since September 2012 from local businesses who are keen to get involved with aiding the school in developing innovative technology use within lessons.
The three businesses are Travel Places; www.travelplaces.co.uk , Cils-International and Sussex Farmhouse Meals.
Nick Warren from Travel Places said;
“As a local business it is very important to Travel Places that we support the local community, it seems more and more that school children need to be engaged with in new and inventive ways to allow them to reach their potential. This seemed like a positive way to encourage them to learn and give them the opportunity to work with the latest gadgets, the iPad is such an incredible tool and will allow a huge variation in the way lessons are taught.”
The iPads generously donated by the three businesses have played a big part in the development of this blog and allowed some of us to work in lessons on the content of the blog and has also allowed us to update the blog more freely with our comments and ideas. The iPads also let us complete work in a different way and give us an idea of technologies we might have to use one day in our jobs.
Durrington High School; the students in particular, would like to thank these businesses for their donations and for what they have allowed us to do both in and out of lessons.
