In 2018, JPII moved to 1:1 technology with the 9.7 inch, 6th generation iPad. We believe the iPad is the best device to provide technological literacy with the creative capabilities that prepare students for their futures. As automation and outsourcing replace many traditional jobs, the coming century will require that students develop critical thinking skills and the ability to create, rather than simply replicate knowledge. The creative capacities of the iPad and the ways in which it puts students in control of their own education provide educational advantages over laptops in achieving these ends. An ancillary and important benefit is cost. Not only does the iPad minimize the cost to families while providing opportunities to develop technological skills, but it also allows us to continue on our path of providing primary sources and e-texts that meet our educational goals at a significantly lower cost than traditional textbooks.
