    The North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District is committed to providing students and staff with the instructional technology needed to become 21st Century learners.

    As part of this commitment, Skyview Middle is launching a “Connected Classrooms” initiative, which puts technology into students’ hands and creates a learning environment that goes beyond the classroom walls.

    Connected Classrooms allows students to take responsibility and ownership of their own learning by: raising awareness, starting conversations, creating partnerships, changing minds, making a difference, and driving change. It is connecting today’s learners with the skills and tools they will need for success in tomorrow’s world.

    To make this possible, Skyview is inviting students in these 11 classrooms to bring their own learning devices to school to each day for use in the classroom. (Click here to view a list of learning devices.

    For questions about this request, contact Principal Joe Slavin at jslavin@isd622.org or 651-702-8010.

    Connected Classrooms is part of District 622’s commitment to discovering how new technologies can not only enhance learning — but transform it.
