We are proud of our one-to-one iPad program, which improves the effectiveness of teaching and enhances learning. Teachers use apps like Notability, DoInk Animation, and Socrative, which help teach note-taking, organization, research skills, and how to create multimedia demonstrations of their learning.
In order to get to know one another and learn effectively, students also need to be fully present, without devices, and have ample opportunities to interact with their teachers and each other. Middle schoolers can struggle to control the time they spend on their devices, and we, the adults in their lives, need to help them develop this skill.
It is our responsibility to help guide them to use technology responsibly.
