CCS is using technology to create meaningful and infinite learning opportunities. We have expanded on our existing learning objectives by building a flexible and mobile environment at our school. We are encouraging creativity by allowing our students to communicate and collaborate. We are working to create exciting learning activities that allow our students to become more invested in their own Christ-centered education. CCS is committed to realizing the full potential that using technology in education creates for our students.
Across the country, schools are adopting iPad programs on an unprecedented scale and an unparalleled pace. Our program is three years old, and we are working diligently to explore the educational opportunities that a 1:1 tablet program creates. In the fall of 2013 we began our program by issuing iPads to each staff member and high school student. We are eager to grow our 1:1 program across our entire school, but we are not willing to rush the process. We are looking beyond traditional content based apps and working to prepare our teachers and classrooms for the type of learning environment this program creates. We have no intention of using technology to replace any part our traditional learning objectives; we are simply using technology to expand on these objectives. Our iPads are not being used to replace our existing computers, and we feel that the iPad must be viewed as a single-user device in a successful tablet educational program. Our goal is to harness the full spectrum of portable creative potential that a 1:1 program creates without comprising the Christ-centered education that we have relied on for over 40 years.
