South Kent School is pleased to continue its commitment to embracing Apple’s iPad as a learning tool. This is just another example of the school’s willingness to adopt cutting edge technology to enhance its rapidly evolving new curriculum.
The iPad has been selected as the most appropriate device for South Kent. Its compact design, long battery life, ease of use and functionality make it the perfect tool moving forward into the digital education landscape.
Every student at South Kent School will be required to provide an Apple iPad for their course work. The minimum requirement is an Apple iPad mini with OS 10 or later. Students should arrive for registration day with their iPads, where our Technology Department will register them and confirm them on the campus network. We will also provide assistance with downloading the necessary applications and textbooks. Should a student not bring their own iPad, one will be procured for them and billed to their student account.
South Kent School recognizes that today's students learn and engage in education differently than students of the past. Research has demonstrated that students learn best when they are actively engaged in their work and technology helps facilitate that engagement.
Students will use their iPad:
as an organizational tool to track assignments, homework and class projects
to access the internet to research information needed for class projects
to create on-line presentations
to word process class papers and projects
to run a variety of applications to enhance their learning experience in class
to read electronic books, tests, newspapers and magazines
Spares, Damage or Loss of iPad
In the event that your iPad is inoperable, SKS has a limited number of spares for use while the iPad is repaired or replaced for the student. South Kent will work with Apple on all technical issues but it remains the responsibility of the student and family to pay any fees billed for any repair outside of the standard warranty.
