1:1 Dynamic Learning

District 196 is committed to a learning and technology framework that focuses on providing students with a dynamic learning experience with increased access to digital tools.

Through our 1:1 digital learning program, students use iPads, Chromebooks, laptops and computer labs as supplemental educational tools to focus on three main areas: accessing and analyzing information; innovating, creating and publishing, and collaborating and communicating. In each of these areas we also embed a digital citizenship foundation that allows students to connect to authentic experiences. We want students to reflect on their actions of being a critical consumer and positive contributor in a digital world.
