Many interested parents attended the second Camp iPad for Parents event at Coal Ridge Middle School on April 23rd.
Parents learned tips and tricks, how to adjust settings on an iPad to their liking, visited with teachers and students, discussed “wonderings” and concerns with fellow parents and educators, and enjoyed meeting parents from around the district.
We discussed screen time, organization, assignments, and several other aspects of modern student life.
On February 24, we held our first ever Camp iPad for Parents at Westview Middle School. About 40 families joined us to learn more about how they can support their student’s learning with the iPad at home and to give us feedback on the Learning Technology Plan.
The camp gave parents a chance to view what the iPad program looks like in our classrooms as well as a session on iPad basics. We also had an open forum session for parents to ask questions and give us input.
ITAC consists of district leaders, school administrators, teachers, school staff, and parents who serve on one of two Instructional Technology Advisory Committees. These committees will provide input and guidance to the technology department and help to refine implementation plans for our technology investments.
