Greenwich Public Schools has launched a Digital Learning Environment (DLE) initiative to advance the transformation of teaching and learning and to accelerate the academic achievement and personal well being of all students. The DLE is designed to provide teachers with the resources necessary to both innovate and differentiate instruction according to the needs of each student and for students to personalize their own learning, making choices about how they learn and present their new knowledge.
For more about Digital Learning in the Greenwich Public Schools please visit the District DLE Page.
Each student is issued an iPad. This is their device for the year. It is used to extend learning in the classroom and to create digital projects. This level of personalized learning allows students to demonstrate their thinking, collaborate with other students, and create projects that showcase what they've learned.
Students in grades 2-5 are allowed to bring their iPads home at the discretion of the teacher and school, with their guardian's permission, and after they have taken a yearly Digital Citizenship course. Students who bring their iPads home are responsible for keeping the device charged. Students who leave their iPads at school have charging capability in each classroom.
