Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Find out how Royal Hospital School, Holbrook have moved learning forwards using iPads and Apple technology in simple, but innovative ways.

Hamish Mackenzie holds the prestigious title of Apple Distinguised Educator and now works closely with other teachers and trainers to help unlock the power of the iPad - supporting teachers to use the popular devices to accelerate and bring learning alive in simple, but innovative ways.

Quote from the East Anglian Daily Times in 2017 (after Hamish gained his Distinguished Educator status):

“It was when we were in Iceland that I noticed the depth of understanding that came from exploring the geography we had learnt about in class, and how our students were capturing all this data through photos, time lapses, videos and audio recordings. My central point was that if students own the data and are responsible for collecting and creating content, the learning associated with it is deeper and it sticks.

“Of course not all lessons can happen in Icelandic glacial lagoons but data captured on iOS devices can be used in a huge variety of educational contexts to deepen knowledge and understanding.
“Last year my pupils used GPS tracking from windsurf boards and sailing dinghies to plot progress across our local reservoir, Alton Water. Simple apps such as Strava and Explain Everything can also be used in this way”
