Middle School 1:1 iPad Program

At TVS we are proud of how we integrate technology into learning. Via our iPad program our students have:

  • Access to apps that promote increased opportunities for interactivity across the curriculum.
  • New ways to engage with educational content (many learning styles).
  • The potential to replace traditional textbooks with interactive content and dramatically reduce their backpack’s weight.
  • Increased opportunities to collaborate.
  • Opportunities to develop important skills for their futures.

As technology continues to change we are constantly reviewing and iterating our program and practices to improve the classroom experience. Our current middle school 1:1 iPad program is structured as follows.

The school provides 1:1 iPads to students in the 5th grades. These iPads are owned by the school, are kept in carts, and do not go home.

Students in grades 6, 7 and 8 are required to bring an iPad to school every day. Our faculty have spent much time learning new skills and recreating their lessons to create an environment in which iPads are a valuable and effective learning tool.
