For the past ten years, we have been integrating new technology into our classrooms. With interactive whiteboards and mobile carts allowing students to easily access computers and iPads, we constantly anticipate the needs and implement different ways to use technology to improve our teaching and student learning.
Knowing how to use technology is a skill of the 21st century that must be integrated into all aspects of the classroom, and one of our students’ learning tools today is the iPad device. The individual use of iPads is a way to empower them to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for High School. Our curriculum includes 1:1 iPad initiative for students in grades 6-8. Since then the use of iPads was extended to elementary and maternelle grades.
iPads for students:
Only Middle School students (Grades 6-8) can take the iPads home. Students in Maternelle and Elementary (Grades PS-5) use the iPads at school.
Laptops for students:
We have carts of laptops available for students on each floor of the school.
Most classrooms are equipped with a video projector with an Apple TV or an interactive smartboard.
Each faculty member has been equipped by the school with a laptop and/or an iPad.
Students’ iPads and laptops are connected to a dedicated students’ WiFi network with access points throughout the building.
