We are now in our 3rd year of the BYO iPad program at Ashgrove State School. 17 classes are operating as BYO and our remaining classes have access to 110 school owned devices that come with teacher and student support provided by Year Level Mentors and our school IT Technician.
The iPad program supports the school vision of being a World Class School. Through providing our students with access to up to date technology, learning and teaching that encompasses 21st Century skills and an engaging and personalised learning program, we aim to equip our students with the skills they will require to be workforce ready in the future.
Our IT Technician runs a Fix-It Bar to assist students and parents with any iPad issues. The Fix-It Bar operates from the Green Room at the back of the Library on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday afternoons from 2.45pm to 3.30pm.
Year Level App Lists
This is a comprehensive list of Apps that have been pushed out to student’s devices using the Volume Purchasing Program. If students are correctly enrolled in VPP these Apps will appear in the App store on student devices under “Purchased Apps”.
If this is not the case, please contact Luke Johns on firstname.lastname@example.org or Sandra Gardner email@example.com for assistance to resolve this issue. You do not need to purchase any of these Apps as they have already been purchased by the school.
As teachers have differing teaching styles, your child’s teacher may have also requested additional Apps to be pushed out to devices. Please contact your child’s teacher if you are unsure.
Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iMovie and Garageband are a suite of Apps that Apple have provided for free when purchasing newer devices. Please also download these onto your child’s device.
