1:1 Digital Learning Initiative

"Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is most important."
- Bill Gates, Founder Microsoft Corporation

Vision

To equip all students with the technology skills needed for future college and career success.

To continuously improve student engagement and personalization of learning by providing equitable access to technology.

1:1 Personalized Devices

All Gateway Unified School District's students and teachers grades Kindergarten through 12th will be provided with Chromebooks.

This initiative is driven by the positive results the District has achieved over the past 3 years with the use of one-to-one devices.

Purpose

To transform the learning experiences within the District and assist students to reach higher levels of achievement all students and teacher will be equipped with iPads. Teachers will be provided the necessary training to effectively integrate the tablets into their instruction.

The one-to-one learning environment provides students instant access to technology for research, communication, collaboration, and creation that reflects the realities of life in the 21st century.

Digital tools and strategies will permeate instruction to support the teaching of all GUSD students. This environment enables students to read, write, collaborate, and gain a deeper level of thinking and reasoning. All students will participate in inquiry driven projects that demonstrate a deeper understanding of covered topics.

The use of technology will become ubiquitous in our classrooms.
