On Wednesday morning we met with all of our 9th - 11th graders to explain the 1:1 learning initiative and give them a chance to learn more about what it will mean to use iPads as a key part of teaching and learning. After meeting with students at each grade level, we brought them to a 1:1 learning fair that we set up in the gym. Students had the chance to speak with representatives from Uxbridge High School and Grafton High School - both of which have implemented 1:1 learning with iPads. Their teachers and students shared their experiences with our students including the many ways that the use of this technology has impacted their experiences at their school. We also included presentations from Nipmuc music, our media center, the art department, guidance counselors, the technology department, and students who have completed research on iPad cases. It was great to generate so much conversation about this initiative and our plans.
Last week we published our website that explains the pricing options and resources for our 1:1 learning program. It also includes timelines (June 6/June 15) for when students are asked to choose an iPad plan for the 2014-15 school year. You can access that website by clicking here. Check out "iPad Options" for the plans that are available to students and the printable enrollment form.
