Choose your level of study
The implementation of the e-learning program and incorporation of Apple devices and technologies throughout the degree holds an exclusiveness about it. Soley for the education degree, it allows students to understand how powerful a tool a tablet can be in the classroom. The creative aspect to let your imagination run free certainly rings true in the tech-reliant world we live in today, and it’s the need to adapt to this inevitability that will allow the next generation of young teachers coming through to really be ‘mavericks’ of change and innovation.
