Philosophy of our 1:1 Initiative

  • As a district, we have embarked on a journey to enhance our inquiry-based environment so that students can create their own solutions, improve research skills, and form their own opinions through the use of technology.
  • Our plan is to provide our students with an environment in which they can develop and demonstrate critical thinking skills, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
  • The single greatest skill for our students in the future is adaptability.

What does a 1:1 model provide?

  • An opportunity for students to demonstrate critical thinking skills and exhibit creativity
  • Presents a better opportunity to differentiate (individualize) learning
  • Demonstration of mastery of content in a variety of creative ways
  • Increased collaboration and contact time with the teacher and other students
  • Increased student engagement
  • The opportunity for distance learning
  • 24/7 access to technology without the need to go somewhere else
  • Affords the opportunity for teachers and students to try new approaches and take education risks in order to grow as learners and professionals

Expectations

  • Every Timberlane student will receive a Chromebook to use in all classes, as well as to take home.
  • Our mission is to continue to implement pedagogy to enhance inquiry-based learning, using technology as a tool. 
  • For our learning community, it about about the learning...not the device.
