Google and IPACA


It's great to see the innovative vision for ICT fully integrated into learning still being put into practice at IPACA (Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy). The new very short YouTube video (105 seconds) should continue to reassure people that all goes well.

Based on 1:1 Chrome book platform, this 3-19 all through school is now also introducing tablet technology to support the learning processes.

With a patron like Professor Stephen Heppell, this school was always going to be at the cutting edge - and there are many people from all round the world following how it is developing.  Under the lead of the outstanding Gary Spracklen, Director of Digital Learning and Innovation the school, and more importantly student outcomes are going from strength to strength.  I have taken a number of visitors round this school - they always leave amazed having watched and talked to staff and students.  More importantly, they leave realising that  they should be reassessing their own practice, and not just tinker round the edges.  That just has to be good!
