DCIS Fairmont is a ‘”1:1″ school in grades 3-5, meaning each student in those grades has an iPad or Chromebook on which they do a significant amount of their school work. We use apps like LightSail to read and Google Classroom to assign and grade work.
We manage devices and distribute applications through the iPad management software Airwatch, or the Google Admin Console for the Chromebooks. We use information from these sources to to ensure devices are best tailored for each student’s needs, and to maximize safe and informed learning for all.
With more than 350 iPads and 100 Chromebooks in our school, we have found that technology can significantly enhance the learning experience.
