Center Grove High School hosts 600 educators at iPad conference

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Using iPads in one central Indiana school district has been so successful, they’re sharing what they have learned.

600 educators from all over the state went back to school to see how using iPads benefits students. It’s part of Center Grove’s Infinite i-Possibilities iPad Conference.

Last year all of Center Grove’s High School students were given iPads to use throughout the school year. The district says it was one of the first districts in the country to do so.

“I pledge to you, technology is a very important part of learning nowadays for our students,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz said. “It’s not only being proficient in their use of it, because they are going to need it in their jobs and careers later on. But that the actual learning process can be substantially enhanced and lead to the student taking more ownership of their own learning.”

There were also sessions educators could attend to learn about literacy stations for younger students, ways to use iPads with math stations and apps to help with literacy.
