Pinelands High School’s 2nd lecture in their 2022 Academic Lecture series was delivered by Karis Daniels on the 11 May 2022. Karis, a PhD student, ornithologist, and a graduate of the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation is pioneering citizen science to track bird species distribution in South Africa. Karis delivered an inspirational and heart-felt lecture on her research, its role within biodiversity knowledge and the need for humans to address biodiversity loss.

We have been piloting using class sets of managed iPads for the last 2 years and have already shown that the iPad is a powerful tool that can make teaching and learning more stimulating.
Just a few of the takeaway enhancements from these pilot projects include: spontaneity, convenience, multipurpose, more engaging and active learning, student centred, increased access to information, paper-saving, interactive and dynamic tasks, connecting learning with the real world, authentic outcomes, communication skills enhanced and increased technological literacy. #weareproudlypinelands #learning #ipads #teaching #realworld
