After more than a year of early adapter experimentation with an educational based iPad cart deployment, much thought, research and conversation, Cardinal Gibbons High School was among the first in South Florida to implement a 1:1 iPad deployment for grades 9-12 in the 2012-2013 school year.
By providing innovative ways for students to access course content, our iPads allow students and teachers to stay current with educational methodology that promotes student achievement and success. This affords students instant access to visual and textual information while utilizing engaging and exploratory ways of learning. Additionally, mobile devices enables educators to individualize and differentiate instruction and deliver real-time curriculum tailored to meet their students’ needs and address various learning styles. One way this is accomplished is through the use of digital textbooks which promotes self-directed and collaborative learning.
Traditional educational paradigms are being redefined and we believe that this initiative supports our mission to prepare each student to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world. Cardinal Gibbons’ unique combination of college-preparatory curriculum, extra-curricular programs and community service promotes the academic, moral, social, athletic, artistic and spiritual development of the student.
We strive to offer our students every available opportunity to achieve their potential as life-long learners, and share our enthusiasm, vision and love of learning.
