1 to 1 Learning Program Announced

1 to 1 Learning Program logoThe D.C. Everest Area School District is excited to announce the launch of its 1 to 1 Learning Program. Starting with the 2015-16 academic year, students in grades K-2 will be provided with an iPad for in-school use, and students in grades 3-12 will be provided with an iPad for personal use at school and at home. The iPads will be theirs to use as long as they are registered students of the school district.

Our teachers are – and will remain – the most important resource for students. Nothing can replace student-teacher interaction and instruction. The iPads will simply be a tool that accelerates personalized learning, providing both teachers and students with instructional tools that bring the world to our doorstep and inspire creativity, critical thinking, imagination, communication, problem-solving and collaboration.

We have met with and researched multiple school districts currently participating in a 1 to 1 approach with technology. These districts note students are more engaged in learning because they are able to learn at their own pace. Teachers report less late or missing assignments because students are more organized. They have seen students of all academic levels advance because they can choose how  they learn and demonstrate what  they’ve learned. Overall, they note an increase in student collaboration inside and outside of the classroom, and improved classroom engagement, discussion and decision-making.
