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.

“We 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.” – David Warlick
