This blog was created to share information about Trinity College at the University of Melbourne’s pilot using iPads in the classroom.
The pilot launched in August 2010 with roughly 50 students and 20 staff exploring the use of technology in the classroom. The academic pilot program aims to realise the potential of students and teachers by liberating creativity and promoting exploration and critical inquiry. Its educational aims can be encapsulated in a single phrase: to go further, faster, and with more fun.
