Digital Learning Initiative

Our Vision…
No longer are we satisfied with students being passive learners in our school. We are committed to preparing digital citizens to create, collaborate, communicate, and critically think.

 

From reading to building robots and everywhere in between, we’re transforming the learning environment for our students. We don’t want students just answering questions formed by their teachers. We want students asking and seeking answers to their own questions.

  • From memorizing-critically thinking

  • From critically thinking-building solutions

  • From working in isolation-collaboration


We have developed a plan and built momentum. We want to continue to build capacity for student access to digital tools.


Our progress…

I am excited to announce the Bloomfield School District has committed to moving forward with our Digital Learning Initiative and our goals of 1:1 student computing.  Beginning with the 2018-19 school year, all students in grades 7-12 will be provided a Lenovo: Thinkpad 11e Yoga Chromebook. Additionally, we are busy planning for additional learning experiences in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) for students at all grade levels.  We have committed to a full-time STEAM Coordinator, Mrs. Michelle Mattox will begin her new role at the end of the 2017-18 school year. Students in grades 4-6 will participate in a new STEAM rotation during the 2018-19 school year and students in the Jr.-Sr. High School have access to additional courses in Computer Science and Networking.

 

In July of 2017, we completed a complete upgrade of our current wireless network infrastructure. Ruckus access points and Brocade switches were installed in each our classrooms as well as throughout the entire campus. The updated wireless network provides the needed capacity for the next steps of our digital learning initiative. Our focus during the Spring semester is to continue conduct site visits, review policy, provide professional development, as well as engage and support parents and the community during our transition to a 1:1 environment. Currently, teachers and students have access to more devices than ever before. We have strengthened our curriculum and classroom culture to reflect an environment which allows our students to create, collaborate, communicate and critically think.
