For over a decade, Leyden has been moving steadily toward the day when each student is issued a digital device as an instructional tool just as the district supplies textbooks and other materials. This evolution over time has been guided by the following beliefs:
- That the nature of information and knowledge is changing.
- That students learn differently today.
- That education has to become about more than just standardized tests.
- That we live in a digital age, dominated by information, that sees technological advancements happening at an exponential rate.
- That we must prepare students for their futures, not our past.
- That students have a fundamental right to expect an education that reflects these principles.
With this vision guiding us and after years of research and study, at the December 8, 2011 meeting, the Board of Education approved a plan for the 2012-2013 school year which includes the issuance of a Google Chromebook computer for virtually all Leyden students. This plan will provide equal access to information, learning resources, and the digital tools that we believe will foster an environment of critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
