GEOGRAPHY students are enjoying more independent learning thanks to a new batch of iPads that means they can work outdoors while their work is supervised on a classroom computer.

The boys and girls at Priory School in Southsea, which has just had its geography department accredited as a ‘centre of excellence’, are having fun with the sophisticated technology.

Working with iPads mean they can do a range of exercises either written or on video that transfer immediately to their classmates’ and teachers’ iPads.

Head of geography David Rogers, who funded 15 iPads with his Britain’s Dream Teacher prize-money, said: ‘This technology is helping us take geography out into the field and gives students more independence. It’s great.’
