RATIONALE

As part of our vision for the future, Alleghany County Public Schools is transitioning to a student centered, technology enriched and project based learning environment.The use of technology and technology resources in instruction enhances individual learning, student engagement, and results in students developing a personal motivation to learn. Staff and students begin to focus on real world learning opportunities that employ 21st Century Skills.Thus, when students are provided real world learning opportunities in an enriched technological learning environment, the distinction between the uses of a device and the professional practice almost disappears, which prepares them for life after high school.The One-to-One Initiative proposal provides a detailed plan on implementation and cost of the program. Please see attached document for details.
