Student Mobile Device Initiative
Focusing on the State of Illinois adoption of the ISTE standards for teachers and students, the main goal of SEDOL's mobile device initiative is to promote student achievement, as well as teacher professional growth. With generous support from the SEDOL Foundation, we have been able to provide 1:1 technology for students to learn and create in the classroom or remotely at home.
Many SEDOL students use Chromebooks as their main mobile device. As a Google Apps for Education District, Chromebooks are user-friendly Internet devices that connect the students easily into their Google accounts and teacher Google Classroom workspaces. Students in programs that benefit from tablet app-driven devices for instruction, skill practice and communication use iPads. Whether on-site in the classrooms or during remote learning, our innovative educators have been inspired to integrate technology throughout the school day as they experience how it transforms their students' learning in extraordinary ways.
