To celebrate Digital Learning Day 2013 on Feb. 6, the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction has released a video that tells the story of the use of iPad tablets at Miller Junior High in Aberdeen.
A year ago the Aberdeen School District introduced what it calls the iMiller iPad Integration Project, All 500 students at Miller Junior High in Aberdeen were issued an iPad for classroom use. The video takes a look at the inner workings of the program, and shows how this portable learning technology is affecting the teachers and students who use the iPads every day.
Held every February, Digital Learning Day marks a series of state and national events that showcase technology integration programs in K-12 schools and districts.
Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn visited Miller Junior High on Digital Learning Day in 2012 and was able to see the launch of the iPad integration program.
At a special school assembly, Dorn encouraged the staff and students to maximize the benefit of this user-friendly learning device.
