HOORAY for iPads!
Chisholm is always looking for ways to integrate technology into the curriculum. Currently, we have a classroom set of 30 iPads that rotate around the building, as well as iPad minis for each teacher in every classroom. The third and fourth grade students have an iPad for every two students. Fifth grade will be the next grade level to receive iPads for all classes. Students also utilize networked computer stations in our two multi-media labs for whole class activities. Grade level pods for small group or individual lessons are used, too.
Each classroom has a mounted projector and interactive SmartBoard learning station for presentation, group internet research, hands on lessons, and DVD and streaming access. Classrooms also have access to document cameras, clickers, and digital cameras.
These tools are used by students and teachers to practice, create, and forge ahead in learning in the digital world.
