EAST MARLBOROUGH — The eighth graders at Charles F. Patton Middle School could be getting a technological leg up starting next year.

Earlier this month, Unionville-Chadds Ford technology director Rich Hug, accompanied by Patton technology teachers John Walsh and Robin Martin, gave a presentation to the school board on equipping every eight grader with an iPad mini.

Hug said they created the proposal because of their belief in preparing their students for both higher education and the workplace.

“They need to gain and hone their twenty-first century skills – creativity, organization, adaptability, fluency in technology,” Hug said. “Those are skills that make Americans great and give them an edge globally.”

Called “Teaching and Learning with Technology,” Hug said his proposal included the already successful pilots of mobile device usage already underway.

“And we have more on the drawing board. We have multiple requests for mobile devices through the buildings, PTOs and UCF Education Foundation,” he said. “We talked about how this will continue and this project will bring these efforts together.”


Hug said that both teachers and students should have 24/7 access to the range of resources available today to enhance education.

Next question.....



Anyone thinks American education is a bad as it seems?



As for me.....I think it is almost impossible for anyone to be as bad as Malaysian schools.
