Our iLearning program began in 2011 with the integration of iPads in our preschool classrooms. By the 2012-2013 school year, we implemented a 1:1 iPad program in grades 4-5 and maintained access to 1:1 iPads for grades Pre-K to grade 3. Teacher iPads, MacBooks, Apple TVs and widescreen projectors in all classrooms and our 24 station iMac Lab provided the functionality to enhance our differentiated, personalized learning program.
Faculty collaborate with students and one another to make thinking visible and to document the processes of learning and reflection. In their one‑to‑one iPad program, students learn to capture and demonstrate their understanding through multiple creative pathways. Various modes of reflective practice, including digital reflection journals, electronic portfolios, and Visible Thinking Routines help teachers assess student thinking and growth.
