“The most important thing that schools can do is not use technology in the curriculum more, but to use it more effectively.” – John G. Palfrey
Evergreen Park School District 124 department of technology's focus is to enable our educators and support staff to create leaders in a world where 65% will obtain careers that do not exist. To accomplish this feat, steps have been taken to provide the support, hardware, services, and training our staff require to cultivate this forward-thinking educational model.
District #124 has completed the 1:1 rollout as of 2017-18 school year so each student in every Kindergarten through 8th grade classroom will have a personal device for learning. Students in K-4th grade have a personal iPad. Students in 5th-8th grade have a personal Chromebook.
Google Apps for Education
All students are provided a google account that allows students to create projects, email their teacher, collaborate with other students, save and store documents, show their work on the projector, and much more.
