DEKALB COUNTY, GA (April 2, 2015)— DeKalb County School District was amongst the top ten-ranking winners of the 2014-2015 Digital School Districts Survey Award. The District received 9th place in the Center for Digital Education’s and National School Boards Association’s 10th anniversary Digital School Districts Survey for the use of innovative technologies and fully implementing technology benchmarks in the evolution of digital education.
All U.S. public school districts were eligible to participate in the Digital School Districts Survey. DeKalb County School District has been a leader in technology and digital communication, and utilizes cutting-edge tools such as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), STEM curriculum, flipped classroom instruction, and the Mobile App. The Mobile App, free to all stakeholders, launched in January 2014, and enables parents to stay up-to-date on District news, calendars, weather alerts, lunch menus, social media updates, Infinite Campus (parent portal) and more. Providing students with digital resources to enhance personal learning is a priority for DeKalb County School District.
Currently, all DeKalb schools are 100% wireless and continue to improve digital communication with students, parents and community, and improve the learning environment and district operations.
Teachers, please let us know how these technologies are improving learning in your classrooms – we would love to hear some stories about these technologies: Bring your own device; STEM, flipped classroom instructin, etc. And parents, let us know how the Infinite Campus is going – we’ve heard it’s much better than the previous systems.
