21 with 21 Initiative
We are excited to announce that all WFPS middle school students will be participating in a one-to-one technology device initiative this school year! The 1:1 means middle school students will have personal access to a technology tablet device. Students will receive their device within the first two weeks of school. Students in grades 7 and 8 will take their devices home each night to engage in and complete educational tasks. Students in grade 6 will keep their devices at school for instruction on proper care and digital citizenship lessons prior to take-home later in the year.
The specific goal of the 1:1 technology initiative is focused on enhancing and equalizing learning opportunities while preparing students for 21st century learning and future work experiences. It is our hope that teachers and students will work together to use technology in authentic ways to communicate, collaborate, and solve problems.
