1:1 Project-based & Blended Learning
In January 2014, the Fox Chapel Area School District initiated a pilot program to foster project-based learning using iPads. In the first year, seventh grade students at Dorseyville Middle School will be equipped iPads in order to deepen content knowledge and understanding. Learning through experience and investigation, the District desires to strengthen learning and increase engagement, inspiration, and accessibility. Our program grew to include two grade levels, grades 7 and 8, in the 2014-2015 school year. By 2015-2016, our entire middle school was engaged in Project-based Learning experienes with iPads.
We have seen great projects and deeper learning develop with the assistance of these personal learning devices and look forward to what the future brings at DMS.
