SEATTLE, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Metropolitan School District of Warren Township, a suburban school district in Indianapolis and a recipient of a Race to the Top Grant, implemented a new district-wide one-to-one initiative that provides Chromebooks to all students and staff. Partnering with Apex Learning to provide teachers with digital curriculum that meets diverse student needs, the district is redefining the traditional education paradigm with the new initiative.
Access to technology coupled with a flexible, comprehensive digital curriculum is providing new, motivating options for students to meet graduation requirements.
"Our goal was to implement a curriculum that provides students with new methods of exploring, testing and applying their knowledge in a format that excites and motivates them," said John Keller, the director of instructional technology and eLearning for the district.
Offering both Comprehensive Courses and modular Tutorials to meet individual student needs, Apex Learning digital curriculum is an instrumental piece of the district's one-to-one learning program. Comprehensive Courses for original credit and credit recovery and Tutorials for targeted instruction address a variety of instructional needs.
Leveraging technology made available through the one-to-one Chromebook initiative empowers each student to determine how and when learning takes place. Students can complete coursework on campus or remotely through the district's virtual school program.
"We are at a critical juncture in how we engage students in learning," said Keller, "We want to extend learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom. Apex Learning digital curriculum enables teachers to engage one-to-one with their students in ways previously not possible, offering new options for supporting students with a wide range of needs."
