Hazel Glen College incorporates the use of iPads in every area of the curriculum. Students use their iPad in a multitude of ways, including: reviewing their personal timetable, receive learning material customised to their individual classes, participating in collaborative projects, submitting work to their teachers and publishing to a world-wide audience.
A working iPad with adequate storage space is an important part of our student’s learning journey. Students require a variety of apps on their iPad to assist in their learning. Apps are used to create assignments and assist in the consumption and communication of information. It is essential to have the required applications installed on devises prior to the first day of school. In this way, students are responsible for and, in control of, their personal learning at HGC.
Helpful information, hints and tips:
We recommended iPads be 32GB or larger.
All iPads require at least 12GB of free space.
Any size iPad is acceptable.
We prefer an iPad that can support iOS10 (iPad 4 or later or iPad Mini 2 or later)
The iPad must always be protected by a strong, secure case.
Students will need to purchase appsthroughout the year (when this is the case, a notice will be sent home).
All students require their own Apple ID to sign in during school hours. There is no need to have money stored on the Apple ID (it is only required for classwork and for acquiring free apps).

Students will be asked to install College profiles on their iPad to support the safety and security of using iPads in the classroom. These profiles will also enable the College to ‘push’ educational apps, ebooks and webclips to the student iPad to help them with their learning. (To find out more information about his process, click on the link below).
Once you have installed a profile, and have paid the digital bundle fees, all apps that you require will be pushed out to the students iPad. Parents do not have to purchase or install additional apps.
