Why increase access to technology? The NKCPS Digital Conversion Framework details how New Kent County Public Schools will create a digital teaching and learning environment and prepare students for college and careers. Computers and Internet access are vital in education because they are vital in almost all 21st-century careers. When teachers leverage rich, interactive digital content in their instruction, students are provided with greater opportunity to personalize and tailor learning to their personal and immediate needs. In addition to engaging students in self-directed and relevant learning, this approach allows the teacher to help more students individually when needed rather than teaching large groups at the same pace through the same content.
