The Chicago Public Schools (CPS) iPad Project seeks to dramatically transform the classroom.
Such a transformation is made possible through use of the low‐cost Apple iPad tablet computer. In an effort to drive “big change” and to promote meaningful classroom usage, Information & Technology Services offered iPad grants to schools. In return, we were able to identify best practices that could dramatically transform the way teachers teach and the way students learn throughout the District.
We have collected preliminary data on the different ways schools use the device and applications, and structure their classroom around the iPad. For example, if your school chronically struggles in math, take a look at the way other schools are using certain apps, and see how you can apply those practices to transform teaching and learning methods for your students.
