Apple acknowledges School of Education unique eLearning program


Australian schools are among the most digitally connected in the world and The School of Education at the University of Adelaide is leveraging this new reality through the one-of-a-kind eLearning Program in the Bachelor of Teaching degree.

Led by Dr Walter Barbieri, the innovative eLearning Program at the School of Education is helping undergraduates acquire cutting-edge skills in the use of learning technologies on iPad through a comprehensive series of workshops and tech-rich assessments. Many of these skills are already being put to good use on school placements.

Undergraduates have been observing lessons in schools hand-picked for their rich, mature use of learning technologies, such as St Peter’s College and Seaview High School. But rather than simply sitting back, our pre-service teachers are contributing to the schools’ digital journeys. They have been able to facilitate professional learning workshops at these schools, assisting more experienced teachers in the use of iPad technologies.

Apple now acknowledges this unique eLearning approach from the School of Education by featuring Walter on their website. Read the story.
