Following on from the success of the iPad classes for kids which were run over the school holidays, Marie Bastable has found herself to be in demand again but this time it's the parents who want to go to iPlay school.
Marie explained to us that she had found local Mums and Dads were having "concerns about the safety settings on the family iPad and wanted to become more familiar with the device in general, in order to be one step ahead…or at least to keep up to date with the youngsters! They also asked me to recommend quality Apps that would help children with the specific stages they were at."
In response, Marie ran a 3 week ‘course’ on Monday evenings from 7.45pm - 8.30pm for a group of 6 adults and had fantastic feedback. All the parents had been eager to get on their iPads as soon they had got home and had sorted out the iPad’s safety settings, learnt lots about the general use of the device and enjoyed being introduced to some new Apps which they could tailor to meet the individual needs of their children.
One happy parent has said that "I went on her last course and found it brilliant. I am able to do a lot more now with all ages of kids and I'd really recommend it. She doesn't even mind what you may consider daft questions!".
Marie wants to run more 3 week courses and would love to know if any Bearwood parents would be interested in attending? Marie prefers to have smaller classes with a maximum of 6 adults so that she can make sure she can help everybody who comes along.
