The Digital Classrooms Program offers a 1:1 blended learning environment to students, providing access to their Windows device throughout the school day and at home (in most cases). This 24/7 access to their math, reading, social studies, and science digital curriculum; a learning management system; and other digital resources provides opportunities for students to personalize their learning.
The BCPS Digital Classrooms Program began in the fifth grade at 27 elementary schools in the 2013-2014 school year. It has expanded each year to other schools and is now in 100 schools. We also provide teachers, media specialists, and micro-technologists with extensive professional learning opportunities to help them understand how to implement the program.
These 100 schools now serve as demonstration sites for other schools working toward integrating technology into classrooms to create personalized learning pathways for our students. We conduct "Principals Think Tanks" at these schools where principals and teachers conduct "learning walks" to see technology integration in action. It is at these demonstration sites where we showcase how our technology expenditure is put to good use.
