Creating with a Purpose
“Children are born full of curiosity about the world around them. Unleashing that curiosity through exploration and creative avenues helps students develop and communicate new ideas, become better problem solvers and discover ways to leave their mark in the world” (Apple, Everyone Can Create, p.1). 

Worcester County Public Schools (WCPS) challenges students to unleash their creative capacity with its 1:1 iPad Initiative. Harnessed in the ISTE Standards and concepts of Everyone Can Create, WCPS students express themselves through drawing, photography, video, and music on their iPads while meeting the rigor of the Maryland College and Career Readiness Standards.
