e-LEARNING + BYOD

They can instantly share their work with peers, parents and teachers, to gain immediate feedback and advice to improve.
The link between home and school can be more seamless.
The internet provides a huge number of resources which are invaluable in the learning process.
Students are prepared for a world which is increasing utilising technology to work and communicate.
