The Clinton Board of Education now has a 3-5 year plan for where they want to be in regards to technology in the districts classrooms.
According to Dr. Jeff Holmes, Superintendent of Clinton Schools, the district has a goal of having a computing device in every students hands. He explains whether it will be a tablet or a laptop, he hopes instead of students hauling around books, they will be hauling their device from class to class.
Dr. Holmes says currently the district is working towards giving students access to the web via wireless internet. The goal of the district will be to link the tablets with the Smart Boards in the classrooms. Dr. Holmes adds having a Smart Board in every classroom is a goal that is still a work in progress.
Dr. Holmes explains they have begun the process of putting a tablet in the hands of every student. Currently administrators all have tablets. He says the next step is to get them to all the teachers and allow them to get use to the tablets to be able to use them and teach with them.
The update on the districts technology and the future of the technology in the district was discussed at a Special Board of Education work session last Wednesday.
