Digital Learning Plan Mission

Our classrooms need to provide opportunities for students to…

Collaborate with others in the classroom digitally

Show what they know through the creation of a digital project using real world tools

Consume content from sites and apps to gain information; use information to generate independent thinking and create solutions

Not only does technology engage students and improve the rigor and relevance of learning in school but also prepares them with skills essential for success in life and career. The digital learning plan is a plan that increases the number of iPads in classrooms by targeting grade levels/ content areas each year.

This it the mission of our district’s Digital Learning Plan and the opportunities the district is expecting our students to have in the classroom. The degree to which this occurs is dependent upon the access to technology your students have.

Opportunities we want to ensure students have in our classrooms are focused on the 4 C's: Content Consumption, Collaboration, Creation and Critical Thinking. To be successful in the 4 C’s productivity tools and workflow are integral as well.
