Middle Schools

In the spring of 2012, the Manor ISD Board of Trustees approved the purchase of close to 4,000 iPads for students and teachers in the District, in order to increase student engagement, enhance instruction, and develop 21st century skills. In 2014 the Board of Trustees continued their commitment to the Manor ISD iPad initiative by purchasing an additional 3,300 devices. Today devices can be found across the district used by students and staff at all grade levels.
 
Manor Middle School

Manor Middle School core classes have full access to devices to utilize assessment tools and expand research capabilities with some access for electives as well. Teachers are working towards building daily resources and activities on web-based platforms for access in and outside of the classroom. The goal is for all teachers to integrate innovative technological practices into their classrooms.


A major part of the iPad Initiative at Manor Middle School is the professional development for teachers and staff pertaining to the use of the devices in an instructional setting. Manor ISD’s team of Innovative Teaching Strategists, the iTeach Manor Team, facilitates and organizes many learning events and professional development opportunities for teachers and even the surrounding community. These events are focused on discovering and implementing innovative technology for best practices in teaching and learning.
