One Urban District's Digital Learning Revolution
McPhail, Jay; Paredes, Judi
Leadership, v41 n1 p24-27, 36 Sep-Oct 2011
Planning and implementing major innovations in large urban districts can be a daunting and overwhelming idea--particularly when it comes to technology--due to real and perceived obstacles. Added to this challenge is the reality of the worst budget crisis in California history. When students are empowered by full access to technology, learning goals can be achieved. This article describes Riverside Unified School District's digital learning revolution. It discusses how the district has been able to move forward by focusing on "outcomes" rather than "inputs," using resourcefulness in providing devices to students, and truly engaging and empowering students by allowing full access to high quality educational resources and technology.
