In villiers, over the summer we bought 28 IPad 2s! these Ipads have a multitude of apps on them that assist in spanish, German, Irish,French, English(for our fellow foreign students) and will even hope to have a Japanese app soon!
This means that even if a teacher is absent we can learn how to pronounce words and get a digital portfolio of work! we also have got numerous smart board projectors to help with interactive teaching, I find it great as a student!
eg. In english we were shown examples of speeches by various famous and infamous people, we could see how it was delivered, simmilar things are planned for the other languages!
While it was a big investment on behalf of the school, it really has encouraged me to learn more actively, by hearing french on the news or by reading La monde!
