Mission
The Oakridge School will provide the tools for an innovative classroom environment in which students connect, communicate, collaborate and create.


Strategy
Every 4th-12th grade student will receive a device to use as a learning tool throughout their school year.

4th Grade - iPad mini
5th - 6th Grade - iPad with Retina Display
7th - 8th Grade - Lenovo Tablet/Laptop
9th - 12th Grade - Lenovo Tablet/Laptop (beginning 2014-2015 school year)

The New Classroom Environment
  • Students and teachers view technology as an invisible tool in their everyday learning as opposed to an activity that is confined to a computer lab or specific subject.
  • Appropriate technology is placed in the hands of every student to enable ubiquitous access to information and maximize hands-on learning.
  • A teacher's resources are available in a digital format that is more easily accessible outside of the walls of the traditional classroom.
  • Encouraging and facilitating digital organization skills.
  • Students and teachers create a more immediate feedback loop of formative assessment.
  • Students connect and collaborate not only with their peers, but also with experts all over the world.
  • Digital tools are used to inspire creativity and facilitate personal expression.
  • Students are highly engaged in relevant tasks which enhance their problem solving and critical thinking skills.
  • Students can pursue their passions, find their voice, and unleash their potential.
