Osseo Area Schools achieved an important step in its digital learning plan this month as students in several schools sites receive school district-issued iPads. Integrating this technology into students’ education is designed to promote engaged, self-directed learning.
Thanks to a supportive community that approved a technology levy in 2013, approximately 9,000 students in the district will participate in the 1:1 iPad program by the end of first trimester. Next year, access will expand to include all students in grades 5-12.
