Muskegon Public Schools students that attend the Transition Campus
at the HUB in Norton Shores will now have new iPads, protective cases, and software to support learning thanks to a $5,000 grant through the
Cathy Page Memorial Fund. The 13 students range in age from 18- to 26-years-old and will use the iPads to advance their academic, life, and employability skills. The new technology will also help them practice the transition to more independent living after high school.
Wesley School Principal Catherine Burr oversees the educational
program at the HUB.
According to Burr, evidence has shown that the use of adaptive
technology like iPads has opened many windows of learning for students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. "The iPads will allow students to use specific apps focusing on money, math, budgeting,
spelling, grammar, writing, health, and even recipe conversions." As the current students graduate, the iPads will stay at the HUB to be used by future Muskegon Public School students.
