With extensive research and ongoing collaboration with Apple Australia we have confirmed that the device requirements at OJC are the iPad and Apple pencil. In working with Stuart Hale (our eLearning consultant) we believe the models that use the apple pencil provide the most innovative and powerful solutions to support learning in various media and formats. We believe the iPad software and hardware will perform extremely well over the next three to four years. A list of downloadable apps for your child’s iPad has also been emailed to you but is also listed at our downloads webpage.
