Stephanie Patrick is a Biology Teacher at English Martyrs' School. Having recently bought herself an iPad, Stephanie started to think about how she could use it to help her teaching and her students' learning. Stephanie wanted to research what apps already exist for educators, trial some in her lessons, then teach others how to use them. She thought that her students would find using iPads in lessons engaging, as many already owned similar technologies. However, as few of her colleagues in the Science Department owned iPads, she needed to demonstrate to them how and why the iPad's features have supported teaching and learning. Stephanie hoped that by the summer term she would have evaluated three different types of app (or other feature) and supported her 'Core' colleagues in trying them out too.
