Teacher Feature - Enhancing Learning with iPad in Malahide Community School
04 Feb 2020
Welcome to my Digital Classroom - Teacher Feature. As business studies teacher in Malahide Community School, with 1200 students each with their own iPad for learning, Bernie Foley uses iPad throughout her lessons to help enhance her students’ learning using digital technology. Here she tells us what it’s like to work in a 1:1 iPad school and how it enables her to be better able to meet her students’ needs. Building Key Skills with iPadI’ve been working in Malahide Community School for 5 years now and I honestly couldn’t imagine teaching without the iPad. I use it in all my lessons along with more traditional methods of teaching and I find that students tend to be a lot more creative when they have the iPad. They have choice, so when I give an activity, they can produce a written piece, record an audio piece, use Clips to create a video or Pic Collage to visually represent it.
