Riverdale Tech Academy has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for its innovative use of the iPad in the classroom and at home. Riverdale has implemented its 1:1 iPad program in which every student, transitional kindergarten through sixth grade, has an iPad to use at school and home to enhance learning. All teachers have attended professional development and are certified as Apple Teachers. In the classroom, teachers create a learning environment where students feel comfortable showcasing their learning creativity. The iPad is used daily by students to create presentations, publish electronic books, produce movies, design posters, learn to code, and create a weekly news broadcast called Riverdale News. At home, students extend their learning with the iPad with projects that bring families together to learn. Riverdale’s core values of being empowered, innovative, and inspired are the driving forces behind our use of technology.
