Digital Literacy in the High School

 

Students at the North Academy of Arts and Communication will begin school year with 9th grade students and add a grade every year after.

In the first year of the school all teachers will be teaching with iPads and the students will be learning with iPads.  The goals of the 1:1 project will be to:

  • Enhance and accelerate learning
  • Leverage technology for individualizing instruction
  • Promote collaboration, increasing student engagement
  • Strengthen the 21st century skills necessary for future student success.

Having ubiquitous access to the Internet in all facets of learning will aid students in developing 21st century skills and engaging in a global communications as well as mastering digital citizenship.  Students will have increasing access to digital curriculum, in place of traditional print textbooks and classroom equipment such as graphing calculators. The opportunity to use 1:1 devices gives students access to anywhere, anytime learning – in classrooms, around the city, at home. It enables teachers to better deliver instruction at the student's pace.  With technology students do not all have to be doing the same thing at the same time.
