Mission & Vision

iSupport Learning has been established by Doug Loader. I develop and deliver workshops introducing and progressing the implementation of the iPad, the Apple Mac and associated technologies. I research and publish my findings on how modern tools can transform the way we learn, teach and work. I also collaborate with experts in the Perth area, some of whom are listed in these pages.

We can help you to develop your goals and action positive change at your school or work place. We have the experience to do this because we have done it many times before at our own schools. We work in classrooms and IT departments everyday, and as educators we face the same technical, curriculum and pastoral challenges which you do.

Why APD?

APD workshops have been developed by Apple for educators who want to use Apple technologies to enhance learning activities. The sessions go beyond just learning how to use software, they explore learning activities that foster inquiry, creativity, and collaboration. The workshops demonstrate classroom management techniques, student tasks and learning models which can all be executed in the modern learning environment.

The workshops have been tailored for all the major learning areas, including Special Education and Vision and Management for both iOS and OS X. Only authorised experts can deliver these sessions. The APD trainer has undergone extensive coaching with Apple and they work closely with Apple employees to ensure that workshops are kept relevant and up to date.
