​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In 2022 WESS will embark on a 1to1 Pilot Program for families who have opted in for Year 5 students. There will be 3 classes in the Pilot Program. ​

Take this link to our Q&A​​​P​adlet ​where you can find out more informaiton or post if needed, any clarifying questions. 

What is 1:1? 

One to One (1:1) is a term used to describe a digital device ownership model where students use their personally owned devices to access the departmental networks and information management systems in an educational setting. The 1:1 iPad Pilot Program will require students to have their own iPad for use at school and home.    

Why 1:1?

There are several reasons for embarking on this pilot, with the focus being student outcomes. The 1:1 pilot provides a way for students to have more control over how they learn and engage, and for teachers to further personalise learning. 

Central to our WESS 2020-2023 Strategic Plan is a commitment to continue to provide our students with vibrant, diverse and inclusive education, with a focus on the whole child. This pilot seeks to incorporate digital technologies for learning to ensure students develop both the cognitive and social-emotional skills they need to succeed.
