iPads for Learning at Haslingden High School

Technology is an important part of learning at Haslingden High School and since 2014 families have had the opportunity to be part of our iPads for Learning Scheme.   This has transformed the way students learn at our school enabling everyone to access resources, create and share content and use apps in any subject. Home learning including access to homework assignments and revision materials online is a vital part of our scheme and students participating in our iPad scheme can take the device to use at home.

Our scheme is inclusive so everyone has access to a device regardless of their circumstances.  For more information about our scheme and the impact on learning in the classroom, please click here.

If you have any questions about our iPad scheme in the meantime, please email jroper@haslingdenhigh.com

Our iPads for Learning scheme has had a real impact on learning

A range of students from Years 7-10 were surveyed via Google Forms in April 2017.  100 students responded from a sample across different classes and ability sets.

  • Students are widely (79%) using the iPad in class for research, submitting work (82%) and receiving work back from teachers (78%)
  • In addition quizzing (e.g. Socrative) and creating content using apps were widely reported (>50%) as being used in class
  • 93% of students are using their iPad regularly to do homework
  • 92% of students think having access to an iPad has made learning easier and more enjoyable.

Insurance Claim Form

We use the Otterbox Defender case with our school iPads and recommend that parents providing their own iPad for their child to use in school do the same.  These cases are very strong and we expect breakages to be the exception rather than the norm.  Please watch Mr Roper’s drop test demonstration!
