Welcome to the 2012-2013 School Year
Ever heard “we can’t do that” because of funding, support or other issues? Well one of our elementary sites (Mt.View) decided that they wanted to provide technology access in and out of school to all of their 3rd grade students and did not let these types of questions get in their way. They have transformed Netbooks that were originally just used at school and expanded that by checking the devices out to students for use at school and home. Paula Allbeck, principal at Mt. View Elementary School reports “Already, the infusion of this technology has been a success. Students treat their laptops as a learning tool. Student initiative and engagement are tremendously enhanced. We are now looking for (and finding) ways to expand the one-to-one provision of laptops at Mountain View.”
It should be pointed out that Paula didn’t have a grant or some other special way to provide these resources but they did it anyway J Way to go Mt. View!
