I am pleased to announce that Manitou Springs School District 14 has been named an Apple Distinguished Program for 2012-2013 school year for its 1:1 iPad implementation.
The Apple Distinguished Program designation is reserved for programs that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and demonstrate a clear vision of exemplary learning environments.
The selection of our district as an Apple Distinguished Program highlights its successes in enhancing and extending teaching and learning with thoughtful and innovative implementations of technology. Incorporating iPads into the classrooms of Manitou Springs has encouraged teachers to break away from traditional teacher-led instruction and utilize technology to increase student engagement and lead to more active and meaningful student experiences. The district continually works to implement new technologies as a way of learning how they can best serve students.
Way to go staff and students in Manitou!
