Carrabassett Valley Academy has successfully integrated the technology of the academic program by moving to an iPad program. Below are some of the features of the iPads and the beneﬁts to our teachers and students:
With the enormous amount of electronic textbooks and other interactive content, the iPad is perfectly positioned to allow our students to read, interact, and learn with the most current material available.
As technology has evolved, the classroom has become more interactive. The latest technology allows an iPad (either the teacher’s or the student’s) to be displayed wirelessly through our classroom projector. Student presentations, completing math problems, interactive vocabulary games, history timelines and so much more become possible with this classroom set up.
MULTIPLE MODES OF INPUT
Handwriting, with or without a stylus, built in HD video/still camera, voice recognition, virtual keyboard or the option of external keyboards allow for the mode of input to meet each student’s need and to accommodate a wide variety of assignments.
TRAVELING ACADEMIC WORK FLOW
Since our students spend a considerable amount of time away from school, the ability to interact with them academically from a distance is crucial. The iPad solution includes the eBackpack app. This allows for a completely digital work ﬂow between teachers and students. Teachers upload curriculum and assignments, students follow the curriculum then retrieve and complete the assignment and finally submit their work on their iPad. The assignment can be marked up and graded or returned to the student for revision, all from this one app.
