  • The Learning Academy at Alsace has been providing Alternative Education to Berks County for many years. The program has undergone many changes and continued to develop. In July of 2011 a decision was made to change the administration. This change occurred partway through the planning for the iPad project.
  • Grades 6 - 12 ES and AEDY 18 districts, 52% Reading 83% free and reduced lunch
  • Perhaps the most critical, yet overlooked, issue related to a successful iPad deployment is leadership. Schools desiring to implement an iPad 1-to-1 program must consider the personnel available within the organization. It is our experience that launching an iPad program requires a champion with sufficient positional power to command the attention of all constituents within the school community, including the faculty, IT staff, parents, students, and community leaders. Based on our experiences, successful schools will have an administrative leader driving this initiative. The principal must be a champion for technology and have sufficient knowledge to coordinate an internal and external technological vision. Furthermore, iPads change the educational process, requiring significant pedagogical shifts within the classroom. While IT personnel may have the technical knowledge to lead portions of the implementation, it is our experience that they do not have the ability or knowledge to facilitate the necessary pedagogical change in the classroom.

  • What kinds of learners do you have in your classroom? How can the iPad increase student learning? How do I prepare myself for digital learning?
  • iPad provides access to information and media to supplement instruction. Allows students to create - produce and takes learning outside of the clsassroom
  • Students need to use 21st century skills to prepare for real world experiences.
