Miles Park School

"Learners Today...Leaders Tomorrow"

V.I.L.S. iPad Roll-Out was a SUCCESS!!

Yes, Miles Park students in grades 5th-8th have received an iPad that will introduce them to the next phase in learning remotely. Through a very prestigious grant, Mrs. Taylor-Ivory has secured the Verizon Innovative Learning System! This grant, provided to Miles Park scholars over a four year period will allow for students to experience education from a global perspective. Students can take classes with students in other countries. Students can participate in global discussions on climate. Students can elect to construct a robot and code it to interact with other students in other V.I.L.S. schools in the U.S.A.

Our 5th-8th grade teachers have been engaged in professional development regarding the use of the iPad, various educational applications that can enhance instruction and the nuances of remote learning. Mrs. Helber, Miles Park School V.I.L.S. Coach has been instrumental in ensuring that our teachers and students have access to all of the "latest and greatest" when it comes to information technology. We cannot wait to see what unique and creative things the students will engage in with learning using their iPad! Hi-Tech Hornets go for it!

2020...COVID-19 has impacted the ENTIRE WORLD! Stay SAFE Hornet Families!

Schoology...SeeSaw...CLEVER...what does all of this mean?

Over the last few weeks, these terms have become new household words for many Miles Park School families. Schoology is the CMSD learning management system for all students in the district Pre-Kindergarten- 12th grader. SeeSaw is an application that provides a grade appropriate remote learning setting for students in Pre-Kindergarten-2nd grade. CLEVER is the single sign on platform that allows for students to access both Schoology and SeeSaw as well as other important applications like Exact Path! Don't worry, the students are getting more comfortable with the remote learning each day and they will be professionals before it is over!
