Chalk and talk is over - it’s now Apple iPads for every pupil

The story of the Essa Academy , Bolton, is a remarkable one. From an uninspiring curriculum in rundown surroundings, the school has transformed itself - albeit at significant expense - to a school of excellence where technology is at the heart of learning.

Apple is their chosen product and not surprisingly Apple are chuffed. So much so that they commissioned a brilliant video to spread the success story worldwide.

Principal Showkat Badat said: “With Apple, we can create complete learning journeys. We’re helping our students achieve good grades, but more than that, we’re changing lives and empowering the community. Every door is now open.”

Students use iTunes U  to access a range of rich, engaging learning materials.
