Technology in Kyrene
All Kyrene students will demonstrate 21st Century skills of creativity, innovation, critical-thinking, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration with the primary goal being improved student achievement. Kyrene has two schools currently experiencing a 1:1 environment. We will continue to evaluate the impact of 1:1 and explore different models in order to impact the success of all Kyrene students.Our students and teachers already use technology as part of the learning process every day. In its simplest form, the 1-to-1 model will merely increase the number of computing devices available to students. Through professional development, our teachers are creating new learning experiences that empower and engage students. They also incorporate more individualized learning opportunities, and provide more choices to students for how they may demonstrate mastery of content.
The ultimate goal is to help students develop 21st Century skills of: creativity and innovation; communication and collaboration; research and information fluency; critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making; and digital citizenship. These skills are essential to successfully navigate our highly dynamic and ever-evolving digital world.
