Personal tablets will be used in Middle School
All sixth, seventh, and eighth graders will be using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet for all their middle school classes starting with the 2013/14 school year. It will serve several purposes and function in different ways. Students can use the tablet as an interactive, electronic textbook that can show a rotating graphic, display a glossary definition, or take notes on the same screen. Teachers can access student assignments through cloud storage as a paperless system to review, edit, and return documents. Classroom uses include word processing, note taking, writing assignments and presentations–all from the students' individual device. Each student will use their same individual tablet for all their middle school years and once they graduate from eighth grade, it's theirs to keep!
