Salt Lake City — iSchool Campus has been selected by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) to continue deploying whole-school technology in Utah public schools through the expansion of the Smart School Technology Pilot Program. The expansion represents the broad scale implementation of technology using one-to-one mobile devices in the classroom. The iSchool Campus model offers a seamless conduit to advanced digital learning environments that directly speak to the native abilities of today’s students.
The Utah State Legislature provided additional funding for new schools in 2013-14 through SB 284. The program extension will allow additional schools from around the state the opportunity to implement whole-school technology, including iPads for each student and teacher. Based on a grant application process, as well as the availability of matching funds, schools were selected by the Utah State Office of Education (USOE) to participate in the pilot expansion.
