More Chesapeake students will be able to participate in the InspirED iPad learning initiative thanks to grants from the Mid-Shore Community Foundation (MSCF).
The George B. Todd Fund at MCSF awarded $15,000 to implement Chesapeake’s InspirED iPad initiative at the Cambridge Center. The funds will be used to purchase additional iPads and moveable charging carts. In addition, faculty will receive training on how to transform their instruction by using iPads.
MSCF also gave $11,000 to expand the InspirED iPad initiative for the paralegal program. With this donation, Chesapeake will build a bank of 25 iPads for use by paralegal students in one of two iPad-enhanced classes. The tablets will provide students with essential hands-on learning opportunities that mimic technical responsibilities that they will encounter in the legal field.
Chesapeake implemented an iPad program two years ago to enhance student learning by providing greater access to information and opportunities for hands-on lessons. The tablets have a wide variety of education-specific apps and tools that enable students to work with course content in new, high-level ways that increase their proficiency with technology and their understanding of coursework.
