By building knowledge from an early age, North Fitzroy Primary School allows students to get more proficient with technology and programs over the course of their school career. Students begin in Prep on iPads and are exposed to coding and algorithms early on. Watch this video to see how useful devices can be for students in the early years of school.

iPads are used all across the curriculum – maths, reading writing and are a natural part of the whole day 
Children share iPads well – they don’t necessarily isolate learners.

Small groups on devices means that you can personalise their learning.
