In August, 2016, the Bellwood-Antis School District announced that every student would receive a personal iPad to be carried from class to class to use during class with the teachers approval or instruction.

As the school year winds down, what is the district plan for the iPads nine months into this process?

Ms. Forshey has plans to extend some of the tools and apps for next school year. “It’s the first time in our district that students had 24/7 access to information, resources, and ways to demonstrate creativity all at their fingertips, so I’d say that makes our initiative successful,” said Ms. Forshey.

“We knew there would be a learning curve for everyone involved, both staff and student, but we were very pleased with the implementation of the 1:1 initiative throughout the school district,” said Ms. Forshey. “We’ve been happy about the forward progress we’ve made for our students and their learning.”
