Digital Learning” is using technology to engage students and personalize learning in order to accelerate equitable student achievement. It’s also the organizing concept for our Digital Learning For All project in Osseo Area Schools.
Our digital learning plan is the realization of our Digital Learning For All vision. The plan has three main components: iPads for enhanced learning and instruction; extensive use of the Schoology learning management system for communication and collaboration; and expanded online learning options for students.
In 2016–2017, all 4th–12th graders will receive iPads, approximately 13,500 iPads in all.
To receive a district-owned iPad, students/families need to:
Complete the iPad Family Agreement and iPad Protection Plan form through our FeePay system.
There is an annual family maximum of $70 for iPad insurance. If you have three or more students in grades 4–12 who will be receiving school-issued iPads this year, please access and complete the Family Max form so we can make the necessary adjustments to your FeePay account.
The schedule for distributing iPads varies from school to school. Most secondary schools will be distributing iPads within the first two weeks of the school year. Distribution at most elementary sites will start after the first few weeks of the school year.
