Technology can be a transformative tool for teaching and learning. It has the potential to bridge gaps between students, teachers, local and global communities, particularly when reducing equity gaps and increasing access is prioritized. PGPCS has prioritized access to technology by providing all students with a device for learning, making our district 1:1 and completely wireless.
With the barrier to access removed, we can utilize technology in 1:1 classrooms to ignite innovative approaches to personalized, student-centered learning.
Why Empower Learners in 1:1 Classroom?
ISTE standards frame the work we do as educators and leaders to provide clear guidelines to support our students with the skills and knowledge needed in the digital age. ISTE standards align to the characters we want to see in PGCPS students and graduates. (PGCPS Learner Profile)
