Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

"It's going to be really awesome for the kids," predicted parent Joanna Chavez, who has an eighth-grader and sixth-grader at the school. "Everything they do now is with electronics. They can't wait to get them."

District officials said the comprehensive distribution process, with about 6,200 iPad minis given out at middle schools throughout St. Vrain, was designed to give students and their parents a solid overview now that every middle schooler will be using the devices in classes.

"We're very intentional in making this a very open process," said Joe McBreen, the district's chief information officer.. "We're all in this together to educate our kids and empower them for the 21st century."

He said the iPad distribution is part of an overall plan to get the best technology into the hands of students and reduce the growing digital divide between students who have access to technology at home and those who don't.

"Learning should happen any time, any place," he said.

John Gougoulis's curator insight, August 19, 3:34 AM

An absolutely significant skill in any research or investigation, for educators and learners in the digital age - the curation of content- with a clear focus or question in mind, the capacity to target a search field, sift through, reflect on and make decisions about the most suitable resource or evidence to use. What a great learning experience.
