Following a lengthy process of evaluation, deliberation, and visits to schools with established 1:1 device programs, we determined that the iPad is best able to support our academic culture and enhance the kind of teaching and learning we value: student-centred, collaborative, interactive, flexible, and rigorous. The iPad is fast, powerful, highly adaptable across disciplines and departments, and enables access to Apple’s massive ecosystem of education apps and content.
Students have downloaded and are receiving ongoing training in our carefully selected core apps, including Google Drive, Notability, Explain Everything, iMovie, Quizlet, and iBooks. eBook fulfillment for teachers who offer or require an electronic textbook happens through the Follett app.
