“Excellence in Teaching and Learning for All”
Technology touches almost every part of our lives.
Technology in the hands of every student can serve as an equalizer, providing all students with access to information and tools that empower them as learners.
Technology in the hands of every student can increase student engagement and thus student performance, satisfaction, and interest in school.
Technology in the hands of every student can change the way teachers teach, offering educators effective ways to reach different types of learners and assess student understanding through multiple means.
Technology in the hands of every student can better equip the workers of tomorrow to investigate and solve real-world challenges similar to those they will experience in the workplace.
Technology in the hands of every student is one of the largest paradigm shifts in teaching and learning to be experienced by today’s educators.
Effective implementation of a plan to place technology in the hands of every student requires careful planning with a large emphasis on professional development for teachers as they begin their journey down the road to personalized learning in a 1:1 environment.
Technology infrastructure must be designed and implemented in a manner to allow the seamless implementation of an environment where personalized learning thrives in the Darlington County School District classrooms.
