2013 Funded Project: Developing 21st Century Skills: Project Based Learning with the Portable iPad Classroom
Granted: 3 ipads plus protection plans, cases and a transport case with charger
Summary Description: The Portable iPad Learning Lab will provide students in grades K-5 at Proctor School the ability to use iPads for the whole class, small group or individual lessons across all subject areas. iPads facilitate the use of Project Based learning activities where students work collaboratively to tackle complex problems that may have multiple solutions. Teachers will access all or part of the lab to facilitate the development of the 21st century skills we are being asked to address in the Common Core State Standards. The Portable Lab, upon completion, will include 24 iPads, each with a protective case and a portable cart with charging station.
