Building a Successful Learning Ecosystem
The district is taking a three-prong approach to its tech integration plan: examining pedagogy, platform and devices. During the 2014-2015 school year, the district piloted Google Apps for Education (GAFE)- a cloud-based solution to allow students and staff to be in the same learning space at the same time. Today, there are Google Learning Teams of educators in each school, and all staff and students in grades 7-12 use GAFE. The Google platform does not require a specific device to work well – so all personalized devices are able to effectively work in this collaborative space.
