Penybont Primary School’s purchase of LearnPads through the use of their Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG), has transformed their classrooms by engaging the children to learn. This has led to improved levels of attainment and motivation for their students.
Hundreds of schools are using LearnPad for students of all ages. The following case studies describe the experience of a handful of schools from the initial decision making process through the rollout and beyond.
Holland Park feel that technology can be used to make learning both more enjoyable and more effective and that pupils and staff will benefit through learning with ICT. Aiming to keep pace with educational developments in this area they are committed to teachers having the necessary tools and training to teach effectively.
Witley CofE Infant School in Surrey is LearnPad’s Leader School for the South East Region. Witley Infant Schools vision is to motivate and empower everyone within the school community to achieve their full potential as life-long learners whilst nurturing their individuality.
Pinewood School wanted to invest in tablets that were not only geared for education, but that would also allow their pupils to practise the skills they’ve picked up at home, and use them in an educational way. Pinewood School also needed a tablet solution that would cover the breadth of the age range of their school and provide them with one system that was suitable for each year group.
St Gregory’s RC Primary School in Ealing, West London, has 19 classes and 630 pupils on its roll, making it one of the largest primary schools in the capital. The staff recognise that technology is always advancing and changing but have concluded that LearnPads are powerful, user-friendly devices which will energise their children’s classroom experience.
King Richard Secondary School has realised great results from tablet technology. The LearnPad has helped teachers share resources efficiently and effectively, saving teacher time and giving the students the support they need with the autonomy to drive their own learning.
