1:1 Technology Initiative

1:1 Technology Initiative

A 1:1 technology initiative means that students are each given an electronic device (such as an iPad) to help further their education and improve student achievement. The goal of this pilot program is to determine if a 1:1 program would benefit the students of OLCHS.
Vision Statement
Our vision is to create a student centered learning environment where technology is utilized to further education, communication, and opportunities for life-long learning. Through the 1:1 initiative, teachers and students will be provided tools to support the curriculum, to increase productivity, to encourage creativity and problem solving, provide universal access and develop 21st century skills. Initial and continuous professional development will provide teachers with the skills and tools needed to integrate 1:1 technology into the curriculum, and provide support to ensure that the technology is being used to its maximum potential in the classroom.
