New technology is being embraced by community college.
SOUTH Molton Community College has recently taken delivery of its first batch of iPad tablet computers.
A pilot scheme is proving popular with students, who have been using the new technology to enhance their learning.
College assistant vice-principal Paul Berry said the technology would have an important role in transforming education in future years.
He said: “We have been planning this project for over a year now, and want to provide a framework for education to reflect what our students need in the world today and what they will need in the future.
