At Kingswood Community College, Technology Enhanced Learning is at the heart of how our students develop. To enable this, we as a school chose the iPad as the learning tool best suited to enhancing this learning. Schoology, is the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) that we operate through with learning content.

To support students in this task, first years are given 1 period a week to improving their IT skills. In this, students develop their creativity with Apple's Everyone Can Create course:ECC.jpg

Across the range of work covered here, students develop creativity skills that they can apply to the presentation of their learning in the form of:

  • Movies
  • Drawings
  • Images
  • Music

These skills also tie in with the schools Universal Design for Learning (UDL) methodologies.
