One-to-One Learning at DCE
Today’s students need a learning environment where they are able to think critically, connect and collaborate with others, and create relevant, high quality content. They have grown up in a digital world and many are already fluent users of mobile devices. As digital natives, they prefer to access information quickly from multiple sources through interactive, exploratory, and inquiry-based learning. Our commitment to the One-to-One Learning Program at D.C. Everest School District will focus on meeting the needs of all our students in a personalized, engaging, and mobile learning environment.
The D.C. Everest Area School District launched the One-to-One Learning Program during the 2014-15 school year by providing iPads and professional learning for teachers and administrators to prepare them for a transformation of instructional practices to reflect a more student-centered, digital learning environment. The District also has a wireless infrastructure that supports this expanded learning environment. As of August 2015, all K-12 students have iPads to use throughout the school year to enhance their educational experience. Skills acquired through a change in instructional practices and engaged learning will allow students to expand their critical thinking and better prepare them for college and career readiness.
