1:1 iPad Program
The Role of Technology
Technology clearly plays a significant role in our lives and the lives of our students. Educationally, technology and digital tools can be advantageous for accessing, processing, and producing content as well as enhancing instruction in the classroom. Technology also allows students to collaborate in ways that were not previously possible, and the integration of digital tools helps to ensure that students develop skills necessary to be successful in today’s world. Those skills are not only transferable between content areas, but also applicable to future academic and job-related tasks.
"1:1" refers to one device for each student. Roseville Area School students in grades 7-12 are a part of the 1:1 iPad Program and are each issued an iPad for use during the school year. By providing equitable access to educational technology, we have already noted many benefits including the following: increased organization, flexible submission of work, more frequent communication between teachers, students, and families, access to current resources, seamless collaboration, differentiated learning experiences, and more.
1:1 iPad Program Goals
- Increase access and equity to reduce race-based opportunity gap
- Improve 21st century skills
- Provide immediate communication and feedback
- Encourage collaboration and increase engagement
- Inspire creativity and innovation
- Promote rigorous, individualized Instruction
iPads will be issued to all 7th through 12th grade students within the first month of school. Families must review the iPad expectations with their student and purchase optional iPad insurance each year. More information is available here.
Students who leave Roseville Area Schools during the school year must return the iPad and all district-issued accessories to the media center helpdesk before leaving or the family will be charged for the full replacement value of anything that is not returned. If the iPad is not returned and the value is not paid within two weeks of leaving school, formal charges will be filed. All other students will return their iPads during the last week of school. The same iPads will be re-issued to students when they return in the fall of the next academic school year.
