Tablets in the Classroom
This past Fall something extraordinary happened for our middle school students at Ypsilanti Community Middle School (YCMS) and Washtenaw International Middle Academy (WIMA). The White House initiative ConnectED and Digital Promise granted us the award to become a Verizon Innovative Learning Schools and gift our students with a tablet and 24/7 connectivity for two years. (Some families opted not to participate).
We have exceptional opportunities as well as responsibilities with the privilege of digital learning in the classroom. Here’s a peek of a typical assignment using the tablets. See what’s happening in Ms. Church’s classroom.
