iPad Specifications for Grade 4, 2016
We have had a lot of questions re: which iPad to buy for Grade 4.
Herewith, links to to all the details as provided by Mrs. Stadler, the Digital Learning Coordinator for the Senior Primary.
Learning all about Rhinos
Our Grade 3’s have started an 11 week project all about the plight of the Rhino. Through a series of cross platform projects, we hope to raise Rhino awareness. Elkanah has gone Google and through the use of Google Apps for Education, iPads and our Microsoft PC’s in the lab, we hope to create a number of excellent presentations to send out to the world.
Watch this space to see our progress!
Lilitha the Travelling Rhino
Lilitha, the Travelling Rhino is currently visiting our Blouberg Campus. Lilitha has travelled all over the world and we are very proud to be part of her exciting journey!
Our learners had fun learning about Rhino conservation.
1. The teachers gave the learners a secret code with regards to poaching that they had to decipher. The learners had to mail the secret message about the whereabouts of the poachers back to the teachers.
2. They created PicCollages with pictures that they Googled.
3. A new post on Kidblog ensured that the learners shared their highlights of having Lilitha visit!

Just iPadding along…….
We are trying out a variety of new apps that we loaded onto our shared devices. One of the most popular apps is Bookabi, a fun book creator app.
The apple TV’s makes the sharing/showcasing of our books so much easier! Amazing to see how efficient our Grade 3’s are when asked to ‘mirror’ their work 🙂
Thank YOU Mr. Mandela!
In memory of our late president – some wonderful Photo Collages created on the iPad using the app PicCollage.
