Empower Your Students thru 1:1 ACCESS

I hope we all agree that access to the web for our students is essential and should be guaranteed in our schools. The more important question is how does that access impact our students' education? At Leyden High Schools we are focusing on empowering students through 1:1 access. Empowering them to personalize their learning, to have a voice in their school, and to create an audience for their learning outside of our walls. Learn how 1:1 access at Leyden has created new opportunities for our students including a transformative new Student Help Desk course complete with personalized curriculum, a student leadership committee that runs through a Google + community, and a school Twitter account that our students curate.
