Technology Engagement and Learning Project (T.E.L.P.)
The Technology Engagement Learning Project is a
partnership between Chester Area Middle School
(CAMS), community businesses and organizations,
families and their students, and the South Shore
Regional School Board. Simply stated, the goal of
this program is for every student in CAMS (grade six
level) to have access to an iPad to increase their
engagement, learning and achievement.
The following have been identified as essential
skills for students entering post-secondary
education and the ever-evolving workforce of the 21st
century: written, oral and digital communication,
critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration
and a sense of global connectedness and citizenship.
In today’s world, accessing technology, combined
with mastery of the above skills results in
innovation, increased productivity and a deeper
sense of intellectual engagement.
The reality is that web-based tools and resources
have changed the landscape of learning. Students now
have at their fingertips unlimited access to digital
content, resources, experts, databases and
communities of interest. By effectively leveraging
such resources, we not only have the opportunity to
deepen student learning, but they can also develop
digital literacy, fluency and citizenship that will
prepare them for the high tech world in which they
will live, learn and work.
This technology immersion does not diminish the
vital role of the teacher. Effective teaching
includes strategies that engage students in relevant
and meaningful learning experiences. Today’s
students expect to be connected and need to
understand the responsibilities that come with the
increased use of technology. Mobile technology is a
powerful learning tool for our students.
The South Shore Regional School Board, along with
other progressive and innovative educational
jurisdictions, are leading the province in achieving
one-to-one technology. All of the students,
participating in T.E.L.P. in their particular school
and grade level(s), have access to an iPad 24/7,
which they manage effectively with their families.
The South Shore Regional School Board will provide a
monthly payment plan (over 24 months) that would
allow parent(s) and / or guardian(s) the ability to
purchase an Apple iPad for their child through an
automatic payment plan system. The student would
then own a powerful educational tool for use at home
and at school.
need technology in every classroom and in every
student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen
and paper of our time, and it is the lens through
which we experience much of our world.” –
