Personalized Digital Learning @ Kenmore

In 2011 the APS School Board set the technical direction for the division by establishing a strategic plan objective of providing every student with a personalized device by 2017. The division has taken a phased, methodical approach to accomplishing this goal. We have upgraded the network infrastructure, moved the devices from computer labs to the classroom, provided professional development to teachers, and explored alternative devices.

This year the project is moving into a new and exciting phase. With the behind the scenes work complete we are ready to begin putting personalized devices in the hands of students. In this final phase before full roll-out we are studying the opportunities provided by transitioning from shared devices to personalized devices. Every school in the system is conducting a pilot which is focused on identifying instructional best practices which leverage personalization. These best practices will be woven into teacher professional development and the full project implementation over the upcoming years.
