eReader Comparison
Committed to preparing students for success from home room to the board room, Jerseyville schools Superintendent Ed Settles today announced a major partnership with Pearson’s 1:1 Learning that will overhaul the traditional classroom. This solution brings effective personalized and connected learning to scale for all students and educators in Jerseyville.
Jersey Community Unit School District 100 plans to provide a technology device such as a laptop computer for every 5th grade through 12th grade teacher by Fall of 2013 as part of a major move designed to better prepare students for college studies and future careers. Educators will begin using the new technology to teach students in every class starting in the 2013-14 school year as the district’s mobile learning program swings into gear. Teachers soon will be trained to incorporate technology and customize lesson plans based on student achievement data, which will be available in real-time as students are working on assignments, into their day-to-day instruction.
Students in 5th to 12th grades will receive a mobile learning device by the start of the 2013-14 school year, and the district goal is for all students to have mobile devices and the digital learning programs by 2017.
