Computers & Equipment

Personalized Learning Devices

 
Kerbal Space Program
An important objective to reach the goals established in the Arlington Public Schools 2012-2016 Strategic Technology Plan is to "ensure that every student has access to an internet connected personal computing devices during and outside of school hours."  This means APS wants to have personalized learning devices for every student (1:1) by 2017.
 
To meet the 2017 deadline, during the 2014-15 school year all students in 2nd, 6th and 9th grade will receive a device.  2nd and 6th graders will receive an iPad Air.  Students in 9th grade will receive a MacBook Air.  
 
With the addition of these 170 personalized devices, we have redistributed the remaining shared student computers and devices so students in other grades will have greater access. See a school map of the distribution.  (APS Google login required.)
