ICT, Computing and iPad consultancy

“Thank you for an excellent, well focused inset on the integration of iPADs into ICT teaching in particular and the curriculum more generally.  The presentation and demonstrations inspired confidence in the classroom use of iPADs and helped reassure staff as we go 1:1 in September.  It was good to get an insight into cutting edge use of Apps and to swap ideas with a consultant who has current day to day experience as a Head of Department.”

  1. I am having problems uploading images into my images on Appshed. They are a PNG file type and are less than 50kb in size. I am also using the Icon Achieve website but keep getting error messages. please help

      1. I took out an account with them yesterday, and registered our school as an academy. I used their support page this morning, but as yet no reply.
        At the moment I am following your series of videos and am just using the already uploaded images, which is a shame.
