Edtech training provider Atomic Learning recently released a case study entitled Commitment, Communication & Collaboration Vital to iPad 1:1 Success. The case study tells the story of McAllen, TX ISDs mobile initiative.
By visiting the McAllen, TX ISD homepage, you know instantly from the imagery that the district is passionate about its huge mobile initiative, called TLC3 Transforming Learning in the Classroom, Campus, and Community that includes iPads/iPod Touch devices for every student.
Todays students are engrossed in a world of incredibly thought-provoking, discussion-igniting learning experiences available at the click of a button, and McAllen recognizes this. Its inquiry in the classroom, integrating technology, igniting higher-level thinking and prompting students to delve deeper into issues at all levels and in all subjects, the TLC3 program states.
Through TLC3 , McAllen has already distributed more than 6,000 iPads in 14 of its 32 campuses with plans to provide its 25,000 students and teachers district-wide with mobile devices.
