Texas District Adopts itslearning LMS
Clear Creek Independent School District (ISD) in League City, TX has implemented a cloud-based learning
management system (LMS) to support its 1-to-1 and blended learning
Clear Creek ISD launched its 1-to-1 initiative in
2013. Every student in the district has access to a Dell laptop or
tablet to complete school assignments, including projects and
presentations, and to explore topics they've learned about in class.
This year, the district took its technology-based learning initiative a
step further with the implementation of a digital learning platform
from itslearning. According
to information on the district's site, teachers use the system to
design and deliver lessons and students use it to access and complete
assignments, either individually or in groups, at home or at school.
is a cloud-based LMS designed specifically for K-12 education. The
platform provides teachers, students and parents with access to course
materials, assignments, communities for collaboration, professional
development tools and student progress reports. A personalized
dashboard for teachers lets them share instructional resources,
assignments and assessments with students and parents.
the product evaluation process, Andrea Winters, director of learning
technology for Clear Creek ISD, "was immediately impressed with the
platform's interface, streamlined curriculum management functionality
and its focus on proven, data-driven pedagogical strategies that drive
student-centered learning seamlessly," she said in a news release.
Three other Texas school districts have also adopted itslearning. Huffman ISD implemented the system this year, and Houston and Spring Branch ISDs deployed it last year. Houston ISD rebranded it as "PowerUp: HUB"
or "the HUB" and has been using it to host digital content in support
of its learner-centered instruction initiatives, including active
learning, flipped classrooms and project-based learning.
