Computing pilot project the latest in large GCSD technology investment

[2019.10.09, Wed 06:03] Craig Leithead, the computer science teacher at Southeast, said that while he initially spent five to 10 minutes per class troubleshooting in the beginning of the school year, 1:1 computing has sped up classroom technology use. High school students behave as "Creators" and younger children behave as "Consumers," making the difference in computing devices more feasible for the two age groups. Sixth grade students at Torrington Middle School may be next in line to try 1:1 computing. The district encourages teachers to use Canvas, a computing platform that EWC and the University of Wyoming employ. The 1:1 computing model moves away from the prior methods of getting technology in front of students: bringing them to a computer lab or bringing a computer cart to them. Even with the ease of access, for Southeast's 1:1 computing pilot program, the district felt some restrictions were appropriate. The 1:1 computing model attempts to build in accountability by making students responsible for their device during the entirety of their school life.
