1:1 Initiatives in Bedford

June 15, 2011 · 1 Comment

Last evening the Bedford School Committee approved the lease purchase agreement for the iPad2 Pilot Project at Bedford High School.  This morning the Bedford Education Association approved the funding for an iPad2 Project at the Lane School.  This is very exciting news on the educational front as we begin to transform our classrooms to more Personalized Learning Environments for students.  As we move in this direction, we are focused on developing learners as critical and creative thinkers able to  find information, make informed decisions about content and create new content using the sophisticated digital tools we have placed at their fingertips.  In Bedford we have a talented faculty that is eager to create this new learning environment where teachers and students have the opportunity to  engage in even more powerful learning partnerships.

The state of Iowa has blazed the 1:1 path for us; in September, they will   have 100 schools with 1:1 initiatives in place.  The Iowa Independent recently penned an article on that state’s efforts to change the learning environment.  If you are interested in reading about their work, click here:

    Very good plan indeed! I don’t see any mention of the John Glen Middle School. Is that project forthcoming?
