Roll Out Plan

The Rollout Plan for Mobile Learning

In 2013, the Board of Education approved the Mobile Technology Learning Initiative which calls for a three year phased rollout of an iPad for every student grades 6 through 12 as well as the network infrastructure, digital resources, and professional development required for successful integration  of these devices into the learning environment.  The plan also provides for demonstration classrooms and increased instructional technology support at the elementary level.  As we move forward with the Mobile Learning Initiative, some people have been asking who will receive iPads first. Here is the breakdown:

  • For the 2014-15 school year, all seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth grade students received iPads as well as juniors and seinors in seleted classes.
  • For the 2013-14 school year, all eighth graders at MSN and MSS received iPads.
  • For the 2013-14 school year, high school iPad distribution was expanded by specifically selected courses (beyond the current Environmental Science class pilot).  This allowed the teachers most ready to move to digitized curriculum to lead the way.
Some parents (and students!) might be wondering how the specific courses were selected.  Teachers were invited to develop and submit proposals, which were then reviewed by a committee of teachers, technology support personnel, and administrators. Each committee member rated the proposals using a published rubric. The scores were reviewed by a selection sub-committee and a final recommendation was developed.
 
Selected Classes include:
  • Biology CP
  • Geometry CP
  • Reading Strategies I & II
  • Global Issues
  • Consumer Education
  • Environmental Science
