Focus of the Doniphan-Trumbull 24-7 Laptop Learning Environment
Doniphan-Trumbull Public School is committed to actions that embrace progressive opportunities, advanced achievement, genuine respect, and personal integrity through active community partnerships. As printed in our mission statement, Doniphan-Trumbull Public Schools is dedicated to preparing students for life after high school. Our world requires that today’s educators assist students in learning problem solving skills and in working collaboratively. The focus of the CARDS 24-7 initiative at Doniphan-Trumbull High School is to prepare students for their future, a world of digital technology and information. As we enter the twenty-first century, excellence in education requires that technology be seamlessly integrated throughout the education program. Increasing access to technology is essential for that future. The individual use of laptops is a way to empower students to learn at their full potential. Laptops encourage students to solve problems and think critically by stimulating analytical thinking. Learning results from the continuous dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents and the extended community. Technology immersion doesn’t diminish the vital role of the teacher. To the contrary, it transforms the teacher from the director of learning to a facilitator of learning. Learning with Laptops integrates technology into the curriculum anytime, anyplace.
