Innovative iPad Modelling for Pupils and Staff
Andrew Jewell
Anna Millar
Andrew Jewell (Head of Education and Development, Scotland for iTeach-UK) and Anna Millar (formerly of City of Edinburgh's Digital Learning Team) are providing us with iPad training days arranged by the DigITal Learning Team where they model and then discuss innovative iPad lessons with pupils and staff. Andrew also ran an excellent 'Learning with iPads' CPD as a twilight session at Sciennes for staff on Wednesday 22nd April.

Andrew was heavily involved in launching the 1:1 national iPad pilot that Ms Wendy French and Mrs Fiona Barker embarked upon in 2011 and he really inspired us and opened our eyes to possibilities. He is a highly respected international presenter, who has only recently left his own school - Cedars School of Excellence in Greenock (the first in the world to have 1:1 at every stage from P1 to P7) to become a full time trainer. Anna Millar is a great friend to the school who has worked closely with us and with colleagues across all sectors of the city developing and leading training designed to maximise the use of iPads in Learning and Teaching. We are delighted to welcome them both to Sciennes and are excited to take forward their innovative practice with our pupils.
