As it was previously announced in July 2022 during the Annual Parent Meeting, the school is integrating the use of iPads into the Middle School curriculum. This project started with Grade 6 in September 2022 and will enhance learning, integrate technology into the curriculum and align with Sustainable Development Goals of paper and printing reduction.
Grade 6 students are earning the privilege of using a device through a badging program. On September 29, they participated in an assembly on how to take care of an iPad. Now they will take a test on the contents of the ASV iPad Agreement which was sent home for parents and students to sign. Passing the test will award them with their first badge: iCare. The other two badges are related to Digital Citizenship: Being Balanced and Online Safety.
The device will be returned in June. By continuing the program in September 2023 and September 2024, all Middle School grades will achieve a completely deployed 1:1 program in three years.
