At Cobham Intermediate we use digital technology to empower our students to become life-long, digital citizens who creatively use e-learning opportunities to enhance learning. To fully participate in the transformative experience provided, we recommend students bring their own iPad, of any size, that is fully capable of running the current IOS, and coping with updates. While an iPad is our preference if your child already has a different device they are encouraged to bring this to school to use in class.
Discounts on new iPads
To help with the costs of devices, we have partnered with Noel Leeming to provide a discount on iPads. Redeem this by presenting this flyer in-store. We would suggest that you also purchase a robust case and headphones, and ensure everything is clearly named.
Although the school will provide a limited number of devices for use in the classroom, we would ask that you consider the numerous benefits of a device that is personal to your child/family.
At the beginning of the year, all students will participate in a Digital Literacy Unit where they will learn about our expectations around devices, safety in an online setting, how to store their devices safely, and how to keep themselves safe. The unit links to our school Digital Agreement and we believe it is vitally important that we prepare our students for learning in online environments.
