Student iPads have arrived!

Today we were thrilled to roll out our iPad initiative and celebrate Digital Learning Day! Through a grant from the Marion I. & Henry J. Knott Foundation, St. Louis has been able to purchase 110 iPads for use by our students as an additional educational resource to make learning more engaging and dynamic. Our first grade students used the devices in their Language Arts class and were introduced to long vowel sounds and letter combinations, even creating their own silly sentences as they thought “outside of the box”! Our 7th grade students utilized the devices in Science class with their personal Discovery Education accounts to access their techbooks and interactive labs. The students helped each other navigate through their genetics assignment and gave us feedback on their first classroom use of the devices. St. Louis is thrilled to be able to offer our students this innovative tool and we are grateful to the Knott Foundation for supporting this important initiative!
