Personalized Learning Devices
At our recent School Governance Council meeting, our SGC approved our recommendation for the Dell Latitude 11 laptop. Our Personalized Learning team, comprised of teachers several grade levels and support staff, compared each of the four available devices (click here for Device Q&A) to see which best supported our instructional model. Click here to see Dunwoody Springs' Instructional Model.
As part of our current SPLOST and Fulton County's Personalized Learning initiative, we will be receiving 10 of these devices for every 30 students enrolled. We expect to receive these devices in the fall! This is very exciting for Dunwoody Springs and we are looking forward to utilizing these new tools to challenge and engage our students.
