- Our students use today's latest technology to help enrich their learning and their lives.
Technology at Pennington is integrated across the curriculum.
1:1 iPAD PROGRAM
Every student and teacher has the same computing device, a new iPad provided by the School and included as part of tuition. Offering access to the Internet, familiarity with apps, and the opportunity to read, write, and record in video, audio, and photographic media, the iPad brings the world to Pennington and enhances a shared sense of discovery within the classroom.
All new students receive their new iPads over the summer, along with instruction and technical support. There will also be instruction available for parents. Electronic textbooks are available for a majority of classes, on a variety of platforms-- all easily accessible from the iPad.
iPads promote experiential, hands-on learning and collaboration. Classes are able to work with shared texts, record experiments, film creative projects, and take notes digitally. iPads help teachers gain immediate feedback on their students’ understanding. With digital content increasing rapidly, opportunities for creative teaching and active learning abound.
Please see the Student Handbook for more specific information about our acceptable use and other policies related to technology at The Pennington School.
