iPad Learning for Fifth and Sixth Graders
Teachers and District Technology Integrator, Carin Foss, plan to distribute iPads to fifthand sixth-grade students later this month, on Tuesday, May 21. These tools are part of our district’s one-to-one technology and learning initiative.
Teachers have been preparing to use several applications, or apps, to teach the curriculum using these powerful and engaging tools. At PES the iPads will be staying at school, not going home with students as they do with grades 9-12 at PMHS.
We have developed several strategies and guidelines to ensure that the iPads are used safely and productively by students. PES will be holding an iPad celebration night in June to demonstrate iPad use in the classroom and provide information about internet safety.
