Millis School Committee Supports Funding for 1:1 Personalized Learning Initiative with iPads through 2016
After studying and discussing for many months, the Millis School Committee voted unanimously on April 3, 2012 to approve a four-year funding model to provide iPads for all ninth graders starting in the fall of 2012 and continuing each year until 2016. Since February 2011 Millis grade 8 students have been issued an iPad that they use at home and in school to support and enhance their learning.
Emily Roony speaks with Educators from the Bancroft School in Worcester and Principal from the Burlington Public Schools on iPads in education. Watch the video segment!
Dear Millis Middle School Grade 8 Student and your Parents/Guardians,
On Thursday, September 15th all grade 8 students were assigned an iPad by the school district to be used during the school year. iPads will not be coming home with students until sometime after October 15th. In the meantime, teachers will work with students in school on how to use the iPad to support their learning and the grade 8 coursework.
