CAPS iPad Program 

The focus of the iPad program at Caledonia Area Public Schools is to provide tools and resources to the 21st Century Learner. Excellence in education requires that technology is seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program. Increasing access to technology is essential for that future. The individual use of iPads is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for college and the workplace. Caledonia Area Public Schools has developed five goals for our iPad pilot: 

  • Enhance and accelerate learning in order to improve student achievement
  • Leverage technology for personalized instruction
  • Promote collaboration and increase student engagement 
  • Strengthen 21st century skills necessary for future success 
  • Provide equity for all learners 

Learning results from the continuous dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents, and the extended community. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. To the contrary, it transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning. Effective teaching and learning with iPads integrates technology into the curriculum anytime, anyplace.
