There’s no need to wonder what the future of education is because it’s already here. The future of education is technology. Incorporating technology into the classroom allows students to access a whole new world of opportunities. Over the past year, Landmark has embraced technology in the classroom and has taken major steps toward engaging students through technology by rolling out a Chromebook program for the 2018-2019 school year.
Director of Instructional Technology Mark Hossler explains how and why the Chromebook program evolved. “Our teachers were acquiring what they could, allowing students to utilize phones and personal devices, and using a random assortment of devices in their classrooms. As a technology department, we wanted to standardize the student experience and provide a secure and reliable method of incorporating technology into the classroom. My desire for the one-to-one program is to provide a device to each student at no additional cost to the families of Landmark.”
While Landmark originally planned for the Chromebook program to roll out over several years, a Landmark parent and the CEO of Century Solutions Group, Jeff Wilder, reached out to Mark Hossler to discuss the possibilities of speeding up the rollout. After a few conversations, Jeff offered to expedite the process by donating devices to the school. Thanks to Century Solutions Group’s generous donation, Landmark will not only roll the program out during the 2018-2019 school year, but it will expand it to include third through eighth-grade students.
