Grants in Action

iPads in the Middle School Science Classroom – Phase 3

Middle School Science classes will receive 12 iPads, cases and a storage cart to augment 2 previous iPad grants to the Science department.

The iPad cart has been used in the classroom for a variety of activities including on-line assessments, student research and note-taking, recording laboratory investigations, student collaborations, accessing videos, creating movies, web quests and blood pressure measurement. ┬áThe iPads have certainly increased student engagement, have helped in the development of student ‘ownership’ of the learning process, and have started to move students towards being more ‘creators’ of information rather than just ‘consumers’ of information.
