Technology is a driving force in the world today. It also introduces some remarkable opportunities for schools to expand what’s possible for teaching and learning. For that purpose, Fortitude Valley State Secondary College will support a bring-your-own-device Apple iPad program.

Apple has always designed products that make learning personal and empower the creative genius in all of us. We’ve chosen the Apple platform because it aligns with our goals to make learning relevant, inspire creativity, enhance collaboration and enable every learner to be a creator who believes their work matters. 

We are an iPad school and our curriculum and pedagogy are heavily augmented through the use of an iPad within and outside the classroom. Due to the specialised apps required in our classroom environment, a laptop is not a suitable replacement for an iPad. All students are required to supply an iPad as standard school equipment through the BYOD program. The iPad is the core learning device for all year levels.
 
Our goal is for students to use iPads as a tool to support key processes in learning. Teachers will use them to create environments to facilitate deeper engagement in learning and higher-order thinking. The iPad has the varied functionality that will allow students to consume and produce information in a mobile form through:
  • a carefully selected range of classroom apps
  • textbooks available on the iPad in eBook formats
  • resources that are available at all times
Please refer to Purchasing Options for Device Requirements and iPad Help and Support for setup instructions
