Monte Vista Christian School is an independent co-educational school in the Monterey Bay area of the USA. 1000 Students 1000 iPads. Students range from Grade 6 (Year 7) to Grade 12 (Year 13). Monte Vista was the first adopter of iPads in the classroom. They have had a 1:1 iPad programme running since 2011.

The New Zealand teachers that have visited over the past 3 years have come away with the thought that this school does everything to a high standard of excellence.

They have a book - and run a conference every year. See the following links.

On June 23, 26, 27 and 30, Five Teachers from Monte Vista Christian School in California are presenting an iPad Conference as part of the Australasian leg of their Speaking Tour. 

Hosted by Schools around the country, this Day will allow you to see aspects of their journey and what they have discovered on the way, through a series of presentations and workshops on iPad use in the classroom.

The content will mostly be aimed at Middle School and Secondary Levels.

Numbers are limited to 100 people. Due to the amount of interest we have this will be done on a first come first served basis.
