Welcome to Our iCoach Class Wiki Page

Welcome to our Wiki site aimed at promoting iPads in our school in Perth, Ontario. These pages are created by Grade 11 and 12 student leaders enrolled in the IDCU 4U1 "iCoach" class taught by Mr. Elijah Funston at Perth and District Collegiate Institute. Students work closely with Grade 9 teachers to integrate technology in the classroom and support support students learning on the iPads.

Feel free to browse the pages here. We also encourage you to take a look at the Sample Work page for examples of student work this semester. (If you like the image lettering, then just visit Spell with FlickR and type your text.)
