Just before half term the resources team at One was pleased to welcome students from year 8 and 9 at Beacon Hill School to our From Fireside to Kindle Fire and Beyond workshop exploring reading in a digital age.
A “hands on” experience, students and spent a morning exploring eBook readers, interactive storytelling apps and a selection of books in the traditional paper format. There were 10 different types of devices available for the young people and their teachers to explore ranging from traditional eReaders to apps on tablet computers. At the end of the morning students enjoyed a tour around the Centre and meeting up with some of their former pupils who are now studying at One.
The young people all enjoyed their visited to One College with 96% giving it the highest rating of “4 stars”. The students from Beacon Hill were a pleasure to work with and a credit to their school.
