Measuring the Effectiveness of 1 to 1 Initiatives

Has your district’s student computing initiative been successful? Has it positively impacted learning outcomes? Moving from substitutive to transformational teaching practices is a journey and providing the right roadmap and development opportunities is essential for success. Clear Creek ISD started on this journey 3 years ago with a decision to provide devices to every student, grades 4 – 12, across the entire district. Midway through a 30,000 tablet deployment, CCISD is now seeing the positive impact and has learned many valuable lessons along the way.
