iPads are used actively in Columba College and currently 1st year, 2nd year and 3rd year students use iPads in the classroom. We now live in a digital age and our pupils have grown up surrounded by technology. We need to embrace ICT and incorporate it into all aspects of our teaching and learning. To assist with the use of iPads in the classroom, Columba College has the fastest possible broadband installed and every room is furnished with overhead projectors and Apple Tvs. This is a very exciting time for pupils and staff alike and allows us to lead the way in attaining the highest academic standards while utilising all available modern mediums techniques and methodologies.
