Pilot Program Get Esperanza Elementary Students Digital Devices
A new technology-based initiative that gives each student a laptop or iPad to us in the classroom has debuted at Esperanza Elementary School.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, the One-to-One program was implemented just a few week after fall break as a pilot program, with each of the grades using the devices differently. The Kyrene School District will study the program and see if it can be implemented to other buildings in the district.
“We’re preparing kids for jobs that don’t even exist right now,” said Cheryl Greene, Esperanza’s principal, told the newspaper. “The goal of next year is really learn by doing, learn from our mistakes, learn from what works, and learn from our teachers. The teachers are going to feel really empowered to make decisions on what’s best for their kids, and some of it will be dictated by what the kids need.”
