Top 5 iPad apps
As well as the built-in software provided by Apple, iPads and iPods have access
to a wealth of software from the App Store.
Because they work on mobile devices, apps enable learning both inside and
outside the classroom. From maths games to vocabulary flash cards to anatomy
visualisers, there’s an app for every subject and every level of instruction — from
preschool to higher education.

you can trust and rely upon on. Whenever I have had a technical query (for example advice on memory) I received a swift
response and nothing has ever been too much trouble. Large Items have always been delivered to the school in person and I
have even had e-mails whilst on holiday letting me know when deliveries have been made in my absence. In the modern age of
