A Year with iPad Pro

I watched with much interest the product launch of the 12.9" iPad Pro back in Autumn 2015. Here was a fast iPad with a huge display, an intriguing super-accurate stylus and a simple to attach external keyboard. I began to wonder: perhaps an iPad Pro could serve as a...

For example, if we log into Google drive on a iOS device and then open Google Docs, the app will know who the student is and simply open. Like-wise, when we log out of one app, we log out of all of them.

Trilby TV

Schools have invested heavily in digital technology and are creating content on a daily basis, so it makes sense to have some of this content being aired in the foyer for visitors and parents.
