Spanish Immersion Academy (iInspire Academia)

 

California Elementary School is a public TK-5th grade school in the Orange Unified School District.  After extensive surveying of parents in the community during the 2013-2014 school year it was determined that parents were interested in a Spanish Immersion program to better prepare students to compete in a global economy. The Spanish Immersion program called the iInspire Academia started in the 2015-2016 school year with our first Kinder class.  

The iInspire Academia is a one-to-one iPad academy integrated into a Spanish Immersion curriculum.

* The teacher utilizes an iPad and Apple TV to stream multimedia teacher and student presentations and multimedia information. 

* Intensive Professional development support is provided  to integrate technology seamlessly into an immersion curriculum to meet the high demands of 21st century learning.
