During the 2014-2015 school year a plan was developed for a 1:1 program with all seventh-grade students in the Deer Park Independent School District. The EMPOWER program deployed over twelve hundred, iPad Air 2 to all seventh-grade students in DPISD. This paper will discuss the implementation and use of interactive multimedia, evidence-research practices, successes and failures of middle school classrooms with the use iPads with middle school teachers and students. The iPad is interactive by nature and students and teachers are dealing with multimedia on a daily basis. This paper will document the start of the program beginning with teacher preparation, curriculum writing and the student rollout of the iPads, that included the development of curriculum for students to ensure they are ready for the EMPOWER program.
