iPad Information – 1st Yr ’21

Incoming First year “Ready to Learn Event”

The ‘Ready to Learn’ induction series will begin on Monday 23rd August, see brochure here.

Alternatively, all session links can be accessed or ➡️ https://www.wriggle.ie/DDLETB_Parents_Page.

All sessions will be recorded and available here in our specially designed ‘Ready to Learn Connect Course, along with supports and resources to assist with eBooks. The course is FREE but Parents / Guardians require a sign in to access the course, Wriggle have mailed these details to all Parents / Guardians. We can assist with password resets from Monday if required.

We recommend that learners attend the live sessions with a Parent / Guardian, however this is not essential.

We recommend that learners access live sessions on a 2nd device, if possible, this will improve their attendee experience.

Learners having access to their M365 username and password would be very helpful but not essential. They can still participate in all sessions without their M365 login.

All sessions are certified, schools will be notified of the number of learners that attend.
