Imagine being a learner and having every resource and connection at your fingertips. For students in Northwest ISD, this concept is a reality. As of September 2015, NISD has over 10,000 devices currently distributed to our secondary students.
1:World represents the ratio of one learner to a world of information, resources and creative potential. In a district that understands the value of technology in the classroom as a means to elevate and enhance teaching and learning, this program capitalizes on preparing our students to be Future Ready.
1:World is not limited to a single device. Rather, it is about the right device at the right time. At the elementary level, iPads and Windows devices are shared among students to allow them to experience multiple platforms. At the secondary level, students have access to a district issued device or elect to bring a device of choice.
Our educators and district leaders understand that leveraging technology, both in the classroom and at home, provides the opportunity for students to become progressively active learners, problem-solvers and creative thinkers. Through 1:World, Northwest ISD aims to unite all of our stakeholders in a partnership supporting the advancement of student achievement.
