Description

The US Department of Education urges districts to use purposeful technology to narrow the achievement gap and prepare students for real-world  success. While there are a number of incentives for districts to invest in life-changing technology, implementing new programs can seem overwhelming for educators and administrators.

District leaders at Greenville City Schools have risen to the challenge with an initiative that’s designed to meet each student on his or her level. During the 2015-2016 school year, Greenville students grew an average of 15 percentile points on the NWEA MAP assessment, outpacing their peers nationwide. In this video, educators from Greenville review their district’s process and plan, providing insight on the following topics:

  • How to identify the right devices and instructional strategies for your district’s needs

  • Strategies for supporting underserved students

  • Best practices for launching and maintaining a successful edtech initiative

  • Building teacher buy-in and a culture of innovation
