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.

“Mobile technology is very much part of this, and iPads provide a complete ‘techno toolkit’ for students including a video camera, stills camera, voice recorder, drawing tools, note taking tools – as well as a mass of specialised software to use creatively in their lessons.”
