The MPS Technology department has provided K-2 with a class set of 15 student iPads to support research-based instruction and the Oklahoma Academic Standards. Research suggests that a young learner’s day should be filled with meaningful play, hands on learning, collaboration, and small group instruction. Your class set of iPads will allow students to work with a partner, at stations, or with a teacher during small group instruction. Students can easily add photos, assignments, and creations to digital learning platforms, building strong school to family connections.
In the previous years, we have had iPads in our classroom thanks to a T-Mobile partnership. This has now expired and the T-Mobile cellular service has ended. This year we were able to obtain a new grant through Emergency Communication Fund, hereafter called ECF. The ECF fund has allowed us to replace 15 iPad devices in each of the K-2 classrooms.
