Student iPad Contract
Creating an iPad contract is a great way for students to be accountable for their actions when using their devices at school. This is particularly useful lesson to complete with students in Middle/Upper primary who might be bringing their own BYOD devices to school, or using school-provided devices.
This Student iPad Contract activity has been designed to accompany The Curious Case of the Overly Playful Platypus, which is one of the four short stories in The Tweeting Galah. In this story, Presley the Platypus learns the hard way that spending too much time on your iPad can affect your physical, mental and academic well being!
