iPads point the way forward for Lancashire training provider
10:53am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
A TRAINING provider will make iPads available to hundreds of staff members and students in a £500,000 scheme.
The North Lancs Training Group will buy 425 of the tablets in a bid to revolutionise teaching methods.
The group, which runs apprenticeships and study programmes for over 16s, will launch a new system of lesson plans.
NLTG plans to hold entirely electronic lessons during which the iPad will replace both paper for students and whiteboards for teachers.
Around 245 iPads will be given to teachers, with the remainder made available to learners.
The group is also hoping to use special apps which will enable students and tutors to interact.
Team manager Gareth Lindsay, who is co-ordinating the iPads project, said: “It’s a massive investment we are making as a training provider.
“We will be offering all our apprentices, programme learners and Job Centre learners use of iPads.”
