The Big Sky school district laid out a plan late November to put technology in the hands of every student in the area. Big Sky would become to first district in Montana to have their technology to student ratio be 1:1.
The district has crafted a three-part vision for how they will approach technology with their students. They want to improve education on information and media literacy, then the application of media and communicating with technology and one day, they hope to have a fully digital classroom.
Once the new program is up and running Kindregarten through 3rd grade classes will have 36 ipads for daily use. Grades 4 through 8 will get chromebooks and high school students will receive surface pro 3’s. Teachers hope to teach children about technology while also teaching them about safety in an ever-growing digital world.
Schools in the local area continue to put an emphasis on technology education. In an ever-changing world, staying at the forefronts of technology will be important to any child’s later success. Bozeman also purchased chrome books for its students this semester in an effort to provide the most opportunities available for its students.
