I deal with quite a few children from St.Sampsons High in my voluntary youth work and I can tell you that Mrs.Bolt would be better off teaching her pupils to read, write and count properly because their ability in those things is appalling! Giving them i-pads is simply going to teach them how to use an i-pad and not benefit them in any other way. It's not going to improve their writing, spelling, grammar or mental arithmetic. It's not going to teach them how to use industry-standard office software that employers want. It's not going to teach them how to write programs that will get them jobs in the desired IT industries. It's not going to get them running round at breaktime playing games and getting excercise and developing physically. It's not going to get them thinking for themselves. Shame on you Mrs Bolt!
