1:1 Device Initiative

Rockford Public School District is committed to assisting students to pursue academic excellence using 21st Century technology tools that prepare them for college and careers in today’s global economy. New technology continues to change our world and provide positive educational benefits for classroom instruction. One of our primary District technology goals was implementing a successful 1:1 device to each student in Rockford Public school and ensure that each user’s interactions with technology contribute positively to the learning environment.

 

Vision Statement:  Innovative thinkers effectively use technology and maximize the capacity of teaching and learning.


·         Establish adaptive and interactive inquiry based learning

·         Provide personalized and authentic learning opportunities

·         Redefine collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity

 

RPS Goals:

  • Increase student engagement and performance.
  • Increase opportunities for students to apply knowledge, collaborate and communicate with others.
  • Empower teachers and students to engage in the curriculum through both traditional and digital materials.
  • Allow all students to participate in the learning process that is meaningful and individualized.

Through the use of Schoology as a learning management system in the classroom and the rollout of the 1:1 initiative, we are very excited to bring our students digital opportunities that will challenge and support their learning and provide a vehicle for more engagement and individualized instruction.
