A view into one high school’s tech rollout after the first 12 weeks

I want to share some examples of the type of positive impact learning technology is having from one of our schools. Julie Read, Longmont High School’s Learning Technology Coach, summarized the first twelve weeks with iPads at her school with a catchy video made on an iPad with Adobe Voice.

Click here to watch the English version and click here for the Spanish audio version. Both versions have subtitle options.

Julie also created an “interactive report” showing many of the great things already happening. Click here to view the “interactive report”.

Please know these activities are occurring in all of our schools. We live in an amazing time and are fortunate to have an opportunity to provide our students with world-class learning opportunities.
