Richards is turning over a new leaf in our curriculum. Apple iPads have recently been introduced to Richards’ students.

 

Richards has decided to switch to iPads because other schools have been implementing technology into their curriculum. Many transfer students and feed schools already use technology in the class as well.

 

iPads were chosen as opposed to Chromebooks because the iPads allowed more creative and diverse ways of learning. There are apps for everything from art to even foreign languages. Teachers will have the option to rent keyboards that can be signed out in the LRC. Students are also encouraged to buy there own. Students are allowed to purchase their own cases, but they do have to return the ones the school gave.

 

The iPads will allow teachers to teach in ways not possible without the technology. The iPads will also help students adapt to the technological revolution, occurring right now, preparing them for the future.

 

Many students are questioning whether they can buy the iPads after Senior year.

 

“Probably not this year, we might be giving them to the freshmen, the district would make the decision”, said Meg Dunneback.

 

If an iPad is stolen or broken, students will be required to pay a fine. If you payed for the 25 dollar insurance, the fees will be much less severe, but if you didn’t, the full cost will have to be covered.
