Teachers redefine student learning experiences by creating opportunities for students to have a voice in choosing what and how they learn. Having iPads in each student’s hands enables them to access far more resources than a traditional school library or curriculum would. iPads allow teachers to tailor standards to the interests and passions of each student. Often these choices include aspects of racial and cultural identities, such as research about home countries, or cultural traditions and folk stories.
Frost Lake focuses our work around our vision of maximizing educational achievement through racial equity and personalized learning. Through ongoing partnerships with community, allocation of building resources and staff, purposeful planning and access to previous professional development for new staff, Frost Lake works to ensure that the racial equity and technology work continues to grow and deepen as the years progress.
Apple Inc. has named Frost Lake Elementary School an Apple Distinguished School for 2017–2019. The school uses Apple technology to change the climate, culture, and mindset of the school in order to maximize achievement and minimize racially predictable gaps.
