Schofield Pilot Report

Through the generous support of the Wellesley Education Foundation, the district embarked on a 1:1 tablet pilot in the Fall of 2011. This pilot program teamed classroom teacher Mr. Anthony Moretti, Instructional Technoloy Specialist Brian Allieri, and the students of Schofield 5M. During the 2011-2012 school year, a tablet was assigned to each student in the pilot, and use of this technology was integrated into all aspects of the classroom curriculum. Some of the key findings of the initial pilot include:
  • Having a 1:1, instant-on device in the classroom created new and authentic learning opportunities.
  • The pilot increased access to tools to practice skills and track progress and enabled new forms of formative assessment.
  • Student perception of technology shifted from toy to tool as the year progressed.
  • 1:1 technology access supported differentiated instruction and individualized learning without stigma.
  • Use of the 1:1 tablets fostered cooperative learning skills by creating opportunities for students to collaboratively synthesize information and demonstrate knowledge in a variety of mediums.
