1:1 Bring Your Own iPad Program

WCSD is preparing our students with 21st century learning skills!

 

We are excited to extend our 1:1 iPad Program to 3rd and 6th grade!

(Check your school calendar for BYOD informational parent

meetings for all 2nd and 5th grade parents)

IPad Plan Goal for 2015-2016

  • As students enter 3rd and 6th grade at WCSD, parents will purchase an iPad to go between home and school.

What is BYOD?

  • Bring your own device (BYOD) refers to technology models where students  bring their own personally owned device to school for the purpose of learning.
  • At WCSD, we are asking families to purchase an iPad.

Why Apple iPad?

  • Accessible
  • Extends student’s learning
  • Universal Tool (Continuity across district, sites and classrooms)

Recommendations

  • iPad with 16 GB
  • If you have an iPad that updates to iOS 8, students can use that device at school.
  • iPads need a lightning connector
  • Parents can purchase iPad at any store (not just at APPLE stores)

Affordability

  • Parents can purchase devices from any store (not just Apple)
  • Mac to School offers affordable prices on used iPads: http://www.mactoschool.com/
  • Loaners will be on site to ensure that ALL students have access to an iPad
  • Loaner devices will stay on the school campus
