Since 2012, New Hampton School has been recognized by Apple for meeting criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and demonstrating Apple's vision of exemplary learning environments. In 2010, New Hampton stood out as an innovative boarding school willing to pilot a comprehensive 1:1 iPad program with comprehensive technology integration for teachers.
The ongoing selection of New Hampton School as an Apple Distinguished School highlights its successes in enhancing and extending teaching and learning with thoughtful and innovative implementations of technology.
Today, New Hampton School believes that learning is a personal experience for every student, which is a challenge when trying to make teaching more individualized. However, the iPad Program gives students the freedom and ability to explore how they learn best through the use of a many different apps. For example, teachers can help students be more active in their learning by choosing to read and highlight an iBook or use Notability for writing, recording, and interacting with others. With the entire school using iPads, online learning and flipped classroom techniques are more accessible. These are just a few examples of the 1:1 iPad program at work in our classrooms.
