image___001In 2011 the Wyckoff school district, under the guidance of Superintendant Richard Kuder, embarked on an innovative program to see how the traditional classroom education could be enhanced through the use of iPads as educational tools.   The Wyckoff Education Foundation (WEF) was proud to be a part of this introduction of the iPad program and provided 120 iPad tablets to kick start the program.

The rollout of the iPads to the classrooms has been a great success.  The students have used a wide range of iPad applications through the year while the teachers evaluated their effectiveness to determine which apps provided a real boost in a variety of subjects.

As we wind down the school year, WEF thought it would be helpful to consolidate the best applications and websites used in the classroom so that your child can benefit from using an iPad at home as a learning tool over the summer.

Each of the district schools has posted the applications to their websites and we have provided a summary of apps in the table below and links to the apps used in each elementary school. For more iPad applications and websites please visit your school’s homepage and click on the iPad button to the right.  Many of these applications can be downloaded via the iTunes store from the iPad for free however some applications may have a minimal fee
