1:1 Learning in Mendon-Upton
Mendon-Upton 1:1 Learning ensures that all students use technology to communicate, collaborate, and innovate in their learning. Students are taught to use technology responsibly and meaningfully, providing them with a competitive advantage for the challenges of the 21st century. The integration of technology into exemplary teaching and high-quality curriculum ensures our students leave Mendon-Upton with the skills to create solutions for a rapidly changing, technologically-rich, and a culturally-diverse world.
The growth of 1:1 Learning in Mendon-Upton
Mendon-Upton 1:1 Learning was first conceived as a pilot program supported by a grant from the Mendon-Upton Education Foundation (MUEF). In the Fall of 2011, 90 iPads were purchased through funding by MUEF and distributed to 7th grade students at Miscoe Hill.
The pilot program was expanded during the following two school years to include grades 6-8 at the middle school. With the success of the middle school program, the district continued to expand programming in the 2014-2015 school year to include all students, grades 5-12, as detailed in the MURSD Strategic Plan.
Since the inception of the program, teachers and students in MURSD have eagerly and excitedly integrated iPads to support learning and instruction. Moving forward, Mendon-Upton is committed to the integration of technology, district-wide, and 1:1 Learning at the middle and high schools.
