Do you have iPads in your classroom but unsure how to use them?

Have you had a chance to look at the new NSW History Syllabus?

The successful use of the ipad can assist in the delivery of the ICT capabilities.

It isn't about the app you have ...but the way you use an app to have meaningful purpose to create a brilliant end product.

We all love the iPad - let's make good use of it..

Who is this course for?

Department of Education and Communities Employees only.

K - 10 teachers.

This course will show you how to successfully integrate ICT into the new NSW History Syllabus.

Use your iPad to its full potential and start your students on the road to successful ICT practice.
