10 Minutes with iPads in the Library

As the learning hub of the school, the library serves hundreds of students daily as they read, research, word-process, email, copy and print. With the adoption of our 1-to-1 iPad program this year we wanted to assess how students use this new educational tool during a recent study hall for the middle school and 'free' period for the high school. From the following "snapshots", all taken within 10 minutes of each other on Thursday, Nov. 10th, it is apparent that the iPad is a valuable (and enjoyable) option for student learning.

Algebra Word Problems                         High School Research Project                   Reading E-Books

Mapping                                                        Typing a Paper                                              Science Notes

Creating a Photo Collage                          Creating a Quiz                                           Watching a Movie

All the students photographed were working or reading independently on projects of their choosing. As can be seen by the wide variety of uses, the 1-to-1 program has been integrated fully with the Middle School and High School curriculum.
