Will my student be using the device all day in every class?

SAMR
No. Teachers will be implementing technology gradually. The school is committed to providing ongoing training to teachers and students in best practices and innovative technology integration that will redefine and transform the types of tasks that students will be able to do.

Technology will be used when it is the best educational tool; however, not all learning happens best on a screen. Teachers will use the best research-based instructional practices--high-tech, low-tech, and no-tech--to expose students to a variety of learning experiences and to prepare them for future endeavors in college and/or careers.
