Born from the idea of having students read differently, Acalanes started a small iPad pilot program in 2010. Within one year the small iPad pilot quickly grew and developed into an Apple Distinguished Award-winning program.
Whether conducting genuine research or creating innovative student work, students are not only able to access content but are using content to create. From reading, writing, and arithmetic, to sun salutations and the downward dog, students are using devices to further their understanding in all curricular areas on campus. The use of iPads, Chromebooks and other mobile devices is allowing teachers to engage, motivate and improve student learning. By giving students access to innovative technology, we are encouraging and allowing students to learn more collaboratively and take greater control of their own learning.
