“In 2006 Arnold Public School became a one to one (1:1) laptop school by purchasing laptops for students in Grades 9-12. The distribution of the laptops represented the culmination of several years of study, planning, and commitment on the part of our school board, staff and administration.
We love our “One to One Initiative” because of the multitude of opportunities it affords our students. Since technology is such a fundamental part of our students’ lives, it is imperative they are taught to use it safely in a learning environment. It is also important that each and every student have equal access to technology, and our 1:1 initiative has leveled the playing field for students.”
We are currently in our 4th cycle of laptops, and have grown to include laptops for all students K-12, with iPads available for students in K-4. Technology is fully integrated into classroom teaching with iPads, Laptops, SmartBoards, Apple TV, and any other device that teachers will use to reach students.
