IRONDALE, AL -

IRONDALE, AL – The "Eaglei" initiative was featured at an Irondale school's open house Sunday.

The Jefferson Christian Academy in Irondale becomes the first school in central Alabama "to begin a 1:1 iPad initiative, and one of the first in the southeast United States."

Students in grades 7-12 will get a 32-gig iPad. The Apple technology will be used as a learning tool.

School officials also report  "Elementary classrooms will be equipped with smart boards that interface with a computer and iPad, allowing for an interactive, manipulative, digital learning environment. Students in K-4 through grade six will use iPads in their classes operating on a cart system.  All middle and high school classrooms will be equipped with HD projectors and Apple TV for use with iPads."  

JCA sister schools have had success with the "Smart Interactive Technology." 

Faculty members and administrators have been trained extensively on the iPads.

The program should be implemented this fall.
