From September 2012 Dublin Oak Academy will be deploying iPads on a one-to-one basis. The iPad will become the primary learning resource.
The students’ textbooks will be stored on the iPad. The students will perform certain homework assignments on the iPad. The students and teachers will use specific educational applications to enhance learning and engagement. Students will access the internet through a safe filter for educational research purposes.
Students will be able to make video calls with family members using their iPads on Microsoft Lync, and to e-mail them using Microsoft Exchange. Students will engage in cloud computing using Microsoft’s Sharepoint.
