If I didn't live and breathe education daily, the words "21st-century digital learning environments" would sound like education jargon. And yes, those are the buzzwords of the day for anyone in K12 education. Even so, I’m going to say it a different way.
Our teachers and students have access to cutting-edge technology and are using them in unbelievably cool ways.
You may have heard that we recently distributed 6,000 netbooks—or lightweight laptops—to our students, at an approximate ratio of one netbook for every two students. That in and of itself is pretty incredible and made possible by the generosity of our community through SPLOST technology funds. Thanks, Athens!
