In Lincoln County School District #1, technology is an integrated part of all classrooms. The district recognizes teacher and student technology needs and strives to meet those needs. Technology in the classroom supports instruction, helping students and teachers reach high district standards.
In the 2018-2019 school year, the district moved to a one-to-one environment, allowing teachers to use technology to support the curriculum without scheduling around lab times. Students K-2 have a dedicated iPad for use in the classroom. Students 3-12 use Chromebooks in the classroom, with take-home privileges available starting in grade nine. The district has also provided instructional technology that allows teachers more mobility during instruction. Teachers can share displayed information at the front of the class, controlling it from mobile devices as they move around stimulating more student success.
We have already noticed some benefits. These devices have provided teachers a great deal of flexibility in their instruction. Kindergarten students now have access to technology without having to learn how to use a mouse first. The time saved in the classroom is significant without the transition to the lab and because Chromebooks boot much faster. State and other computerized testing can take place in the familiar classroom setting rather than a lab.
The technology department looks forward to supporting the district’s future educational goals!.
