“Sushi Monster,” a free iPad game produced by Scholastic, is just one of several games that Willard School teachers are using in their classrooms as part of the school’s initiative to integrate technology into the classroom in a fun way.

This year, the district has taken a heightened interest in improving its professional technology savvy and integrating technology into all curricular areas. The success of iPad usage at Willard and other schools is giving the district extra impetus to keep forging forward with a variety of technology goals planned for the future.

  1. Education needs to be a game to keep their attention. Edutainment is the future.

    Once the school gets all their staff to use technology consistently they will be able to move technology into the classroom. ONE signon to access all aspects of the RPS system. currently we have a mashup of different applications pretending to be a student access system. How many signons do high school students need to know? How many teachers just post grades because they can’t or won’t put all of the class information online?

    You can’t move forward till the teachers are comfortable with the technology.
