There are a huge number of apps that allow for amazing content creation, access, connection and sharing.
- We have consolidated our app list and review it regularly. Staff and students can make recommendations to their Leader of Learning or teacher. Apps are reviewed and added to the list as required.
- Apps at SACS Apps are purchased by the school and pushed out to devices using AirWatch. A list of the core apps used across all subjects along with more specific apps can be seen on the iPad Apps Used at SACS page. Students will receive training on use of apps for learning within the context of their normal classes.
