iPads at McCaskey

We believe that in order for our student to be successful in careers, in college, and as productive citizens, we must provide our students with the digital tools resources that they need to succeed.  In September, all 9th grade students will receive an iPad to use for school and at home work.

9th Grade students will use iPads for:

  • Accessing Schoology to complete assignments, collaborate with peers, and engage in learning activities.
  • Learning utilizing Apple Apps, which utilize a secure, managed Apple ID:
    • Pages to create newsletters, books, reports, resumes, letters, flyers, etc.
    • Keynote to create interactive, multimedia presentations.
    • Numbers to analyze sets of data and make predictions based upon the data, create project timelines, and showcase project progression.
    • iMovie and Clips to create movies and/or trailers to showcase content understanding.
    • GarageBand to create original musical compositions and voice recordings to add to online literacy or language portfolios.
  • Engaging in learning utilizing the G Suite for Education through use of a Clever.com account.
    • Collaborate with peers and receive instant feedback from teachers and/or classmates in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
    • Collect and analyze data in Google Forms and Sheets.
    • Utilize unlimited storage in Google Drive, which allows students to create and save work, access the files on any device, and share them instantly.​​​​​​​
