EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

“Excellence in Teaching and Learning for All”

WE BELIEVE

  • 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.
