WPS 1:1 Learning Initiative

CENTRAL CLAIM: The 1:1 Initiative enables educators to focus on every student, every day while delivering student-centered, individualized instruction in a safe collaborative learning environment that encourages students to demonstrate understanding in multiple ways. Students learn how to use technology fluently, productively, and responsibly as a tool to problem-solve, communicate, create, innovate, and make global connections through authentic learning experiences.
 
We envision a 1:1 learning environment that...
  • Creates a culture where technology is used productively, responsibly, ethically, and appropriately.

  • Increases access to technology, facilitates formative assessment, supports general instruction, and enables new modes of differentiation, without stigma.

  • Prepares students to be innovators by shifting their perception of technology from toy to tool.

  • Promotes equity by addressing the "digital gap" between students without technology access at home and their peers.

  • Invests in our human capital by providing faculty with new tools and professional development to grow and develop their instructional capacity.
