There are 100 tips, categorised by your experience with an iPad ranging from apps to use in lessons, through to setting your iPad up specifically with a school environment in mind.

Bedford Girls’ School is located in Bedfordshire around an hour north of London. We were created from the merger of two traditional girls’ schools in 2011. BGS is an independent day school for girls aged 7-18 years old and operated by the Harpur Trust.
In 2013, we conducted a trial of one-to-one iPad with Year 8 students and worked with the University of Hull to measure the success of using iPads in learning.
iPads are now used on a 1:1 basis across the Junior School, Senior School, and Sixth Form, and all teachers in the school, with over 1,000 devices on campus.
Many of our teachers embed iTunes U in their practice and we have a Digital Content Developer on staff who helps us curate and publish some very high-quality textbooks using iBooks Author.
Teachers regularly use apps like Explain Everything, iMovie, Socrative and Google Drive.

Rumiko Handa & James Potter In the Western world the period from the mid-eighteenth through the nineteenth century was a time of expanding historical consciousness, a period that saw the birth of modern historiography, a profusion of historical novels and paintings, and the widespread production of historical plays. Historical buildings, in themselves already of intense interest to people of the day, also found their way into the multiplying cultural forms as concrete presences anchoring a novelist’s, poet’s, painter’s, or, eventually, filmmaker’s vision of the past. In recent years a number of blockbuster films have used historically significant buildings as filming locations because buildings can concretely bring a former era or fictional world closer to contemporary viewers. Conjuring the Real traces the genealogy of this representational role of architecture, going back through the history of film and then further in literature, art, and theater. The contributors examine the ways in which authors, artists, and stage managers used complex depictions of buildings to feed and shape the audience’s historical imagination.
James Potter WHAT IF three young teens - Codge, Stump, and Chick - and their Salt Lake City rock and roll band Beat The Needles got the harebrained scheme to write an offbeat yuletide tune for Miss December then secretly invite her to their churches school sponsored Catholic Youth Organization Christmas fund raiser with the intention of performing the song live in front of the priests, nuns, family, parishioners, and classmates simply to impress her? Would the priests get hot under the collar? Or the nun´s resort to punitive bad habits? What would the parishioners say? And will the youthful band survive to play another day or succumb to Old Lang Syne?
“Santa please remember, pretty Miss December. Bring me Christmas Carroll for a Merry Christmas!” - Beat The Needles
Christmas Carroll is an uproarious coming of age story pitting innocence and naïveté against the unbending ironclad will of the religious and social right…as in I´m right, you´re wrong!
