Leading the Way in IPad Integration!
Genesis Prep is proud to be pushing the envelope of technology in the classroom. We take our Mission Statement seriously when we say we aim to provide an education that “prepares students for life.” In 2012, GPA set out on a three-phase plan for iPad integration for all grades, K-12.
2012-2013 PHASE I- iPad Technology in EVERY classroom
With the help and generosity of GPA families, we accomplished this goal in record time. By Christmas of 2012, every teacher had an iPad for use in their classroom and every classroom was equipped with a projection system so that any content on the iPad (educational apps, videos, class materials) could be wirelessly “mirrored” for all students to interact with and experience. It’s like a SmartBoard on overdrive and we are so excited to have this available for every student and teacher here at Genesis!
2013-2014 PHASE II- 1:1 iPads for Middle School and High School students
Genesis continues to lead the way in technology! GPA is the first school in North Idaho to adopt 1:1 iPads in grades 7-12. Students and teachers will be utilizing this cutting edge device giving them access to digital curriculum, paperless homework, email, web based research, word processing, calculator, digital camera and so much more.

Coming Soon! PHASE III- Mobile Elementary iPad lab
The final phase of our three-phase plan is to have mobile lab of 15-25 iPads for our Elementary teachers and students. With over 20,000 educational apps available from the App Store, the world will be at their fingertips to reinforce concepts learned in class, explore deeper into the subject matter and creatively express and present what they have learned at Genesis. Our K-6 program is very excited with what this phase will open up to our Elementary students!
