Who could have imagined how technology would shape almost every part of our lives? Students have no trouble adapting to the tablets instead of books and interactive technology is adding a whole new dimension to teaching. Many schools in San Diego County are not only keeping up. They're leading the way by incorporating technology in their teaching. And it's having a positive impact on student learning and possibly leveling the playing field for education.
San Diego Unified School District will receive the Impact Award for its district-wide commitment to incorporating 21st century technology in the classroom.
