About the iPad initiative
Nineteen primary schools have been selected to participate in the Early Childhood iPad Initiative. The selection criteria considered the greatest level of improvement in NAPLAN reading and numeracy for results between 2009 and 2011. Selection was limited to the Literacy and Numeracy National Partnership schools in recognition of their work over the past two years. Over 850 iPad devices have been distributed to the 19 schools. The Year 1 and 2 students and teachers will have access to these devices.
