Use of iPads in the classroom enhances the learning environment by broadening the walls of the classroom and giving students a wealth of educational materials. One-to-One personalized learning increases access to the internet during the school day and promotes the responsible and ethical use of today’s technology.
Rosary High School introduced One-to-One Student Technology at the start of the 2014-15 school year.
All Rosary students need an iPad for daily use. IPads may be purchased directly from Apple or any local distributor. An iPad or iPad Pro with wi-fi and at least 32 GB or more of storage is recommended. The iPads come with free apps for books, documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. These models have adequate speed, memory and battery life for classroom use. A protective case will be necessary to protect your investment.
