iPad Program

The Hun School of Princeton has a 1:1 iPad Program, with all students in grades 6 – 12, and PG carrying an Apple iPad on campus and at home. Our iPad Program provides a common device for teachers and students to enhance technological literacy, promote creativity and collaboration, enable interactive and engaged learning experiences, support differentiated instruction, and make learning accessible to students from any location at any time.

List of 4 items.

  • iPads eliminate the barrier to technology in the classroom.

    We believe that in order to maximize a technology-based curriculum, access must be universal.  Program development leaps forward when each student and faculty member is using the same device throughout the day and evening.
  • iBooks, iTunes U, and educational apps provide enhanced content.

    iBooks textbooks can offer unparalleled access to course material with text, videos, and other interactive tools built right in. iTunes U is a virtual library of teaching tools that teachers can use to build classes and lessons. Applications such as iMovie, Garage band, and Keynote provide dynamic programs for movies, music, and presentation software to each student.
  • iBooks decrease student expenses.

    iBook textbooks are available for a fraction of the cost of their printed counterparts. Most iBook textbooks cost $14.99 compared to $100 or more for a printed textbook. iPad costs begin at $499. Hun School teachers coordinate book selection to ensure students have this option.  The School projects a savings of $300 per family over two years. This doesn’t include the added savings when the iPad takes the place of a notebook, planner, and supplies.
  • Studies show that constant access to technology increases student performance.

    Besides being a fun and useful educational tool for engaging students, iPads have proven to increase test scores and student proficiency. In a recent study done by a public school district in California, students using iPads saw their math test scores increase 20% in one year compared to students using traditional textbooks. A recent study at Oklahoma State University concluded that 75% of students agreed that the iPad enhanced their learning experience.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school.  Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
