At Ramsey Middle School, students have the opportunity to use iPads as part of their cousework. In September, we will begin to teach students about appropriate iPad usage, charging, transporting safely, and looking up appropriate, educational content. Students will have to accomplish tasks to prove that they can use it appropriately and will begin to take iPads home sometime in October. These tasks will be related to how they will use the iPad, such as using looking up resources, annotating and turning in PDFs, sharing documents with teachers, looking up grades, and preparing presentations. IPads will be collected at the end of May. More details can be found in the iPad contract, however, the following may be helpful as well:
