Event description

Description

The de Ferrers Academy began to roll out 1:1 iPad in October 2012 as a pilot project with the sixth form and teachers. Feedback was incredibly positive and by September 2014 they had expanded the project to include every student in Years 10 -13, the entirety of their Trent Campus.

In September 2013 they became an Apple Regional Training Centre and in December 2015, the Academy was invited to join the Apple Distinguished Program for Schools, recognising outstanding leadership and learning in the use of Apple technologies.

Visit the Academy and hear from Greg Hughes (Vice Principal/Teacher of Physics & Apple Distinguished Educator) about their iPad journey.
