iPad 1:1 Learning Program
A recent St. Cloud Times article asked readers to “Imagine an iPad in every student’s hands, their teacher in front of a Smart Board leading an interactive lesson, with no need to book a cart full of the smart devices weeks in advance.”
While many districts in Minnesota are looking to that as a possibility, here in Becker our students have that opportunity today. Now in its third year, the High School iPad 1:1 Learning Program continues to be an example of how technology can help “prepare self-directed learners to thrive in a changing global community”. Teachers continue to explore ways to help students learn differently, think more broadly, and show what they know more efficiently with the use technology. This dedication by staff and students has allowed Becker School District to be a regional leader in educational technology and Becker High School to be renewed as an Apple Distinguished School 2013-15.
This move forward has equally gained strength in the other buildings as well. The iPad 1:1 Learning Program has moved to the Middle School this year with the 8th grade students finishing their first year in the program and 7th grade eagerly preparing for next fall already. The use of devices is not limited to the 1:1 programs as there are opportunities for all grade levels to explore ways to support students through the use of shared devices, both with mobile technology and computer labs. Becker Public Schools is able to provide nearly a device per student on average throughout the district. Overall, the future is very bright as we continue to find the best ways to support learners and “prepare self-directed learners to thrive in a changing global community.”
