As published in the Iron Mountain Daily News:
"Pine Mountain Christian School updated its technology services last month thanks to generous donors RJ Manufacturing, Inc. and Northern Michigan Bank and Trust. In addition to several new desktop computers, students will now have access to iPads as part of a 1-to-1 program aimed at making current educational content more relevant and accessible.
"Emily Graham, principal and teacher for grades K-8, sees the iPads as especially useful. 'These tools foster academic excellence and support the holistic growth God desires each student to experience in preparation for an eternity of joyful service,' she said. 'The students are motivated, and we are excited to offer them a real-world way to learn.'
"The iPads will be beneficial in a variety of ways and at all points in the learning cycle. Students are able to connect with a topic through media-rich content, learn by researching sources from around the world, see immediate feedback on some assignments, and create innovative ways to share their critical thinking. Using the iPads, students in the multi-grade environment can access content at their level at any time during the day through apps, online textbooks, PDFs, and educational media.
"Students and staff alike appreciate the opportunity. 'We are so grateful to those who made this possible. From the wood chips earlier this year to the updated technology, we have been blessed,' Graham said. 'When people work together and reach out to one another by God’s grace, we all benefit. We thank you, and we intend to pass it on.'"
