New Initiative Provides Laptops For Linden 3rd-8th Graders

LINDEN — The Linden Public School District is implementing a One to One Technology Initiative, providing MacBook Air laptops for all students in grades three through eight for instructional use.

Dr. Danny Robertozzi, superintendent of schools, expressed his excitement for the project. “This One to One Technology Initiative will increase technological literacy among our students helping them master 21st Century skills essential in preparing them for college, careers, and the real world.”

The One to One Technology Initiative is intended to improve academic achievement for all students, open a new dimension of instruction for the classroom, and bridge the digital divide between entertainment and education.

Spearheading the initiative will be a core group of educators, Vanguard Teachers, trained by Apple. These Vanguard Teachers will turn-key their knowledge and training experiences to other staff members as further implementation takes place. This initiative continues the movement to make technology an integral part of the district’s curriculum, according to school officials. In planning for a successful implementation, there will be extensive professional development for teachers, technology embedded curriculum for students, and informational sessions for parents throughout the district, officials said.
