iPad 1:1 Program

iPads are an educational transformation tool which allows teachers to differentiate instruction and gives students the freedom to explore learning in new and exciting ways.

Education is no longer limited to an environment of walls where a teacher lectures in front of the classroom. Students need tools to bolster learning, create, communicate, organize, and establish excellent time management skills: the iPad is that tool for Ascension!

Ascension uses digital books from Apple’s iBooks and other online publishers. We continue to research options to update and maintain a challenging curriculum.

Ascension provides each student an iPad 4 or Air and protective cover.

Our faculty attend a minimum of five workshops/conferences per year pertaining to using iPads effectively in the classroom as well as individual research to remain current with how the tool is used. Some of the conferences attended by our faculty include:

  • iSummit
  • Google
  • KySTE
  • eTech
  • Lausanne

“There can be infinite uses of the computer and of new age technology, but if teachers themselves are not able to bring it into the classroom and make it work, then it fails.” – Nancy Kassebaum

Wireless Campus and High Speed Network

Faculty and students have their own secure wireless network while visitors to our school connect to a guest network.

Ascension uses a mobile device management system which allows us to push out apps, implement, enforce and monitor the settings, profiles, encryption standards, and passwords of each iPad—automatically and remotely.

Student and Parent Meetings

Students and parents are required to attend the iPad meeting in August. iPads are handed out to students, policies are covered and documents are signed. There will also be several, non-mandatory, iPad tutorial and information sessions throughout the school year. You can find all forms, policies, FAQ and other useful links through the tabs on this page.
