At the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year District 158 began its venture into one-to-one computing. Four pilot classrooms were given classroom sets of tablet computers and the opportunity to incorporate this technology into their daily activities. The success of the pilot program led to the pilots expansion to every classroom in the district for the 2012-2013 school year.
Each kindergarden and first grade classroom have been equipped with a classroom sets of ASUS EeePads which is an android based tablet. Grades 2 thru 8 have available for each classroom Windows based netbooks.
One-to-One Computing is intended to be a comprehensive program that supports the integration of technology into the students' learning environment. Teachers incorporate diverse computer-based activities into their curriculum based on the common core standards.
The goal of this program is to establish learning environments where students are comfortable with the use of state-of-the-art technology to learn to think critically within a global environment.
