"To shift toward digital learning, Baltimore County Public Schools has chosen ten elementary schools to pilot 1:1 personalized learning environments. Officially kicking off January 21, the 1:1 pilot will track best practices for curriculum development, technology upgrades and professional development for teachers and administrators. Teachers at those ten schools (referenced as "Lighthouse" schools) will receive devices in spring 2014, while Lighthouse students will get devices between 2014 and 2016. The goal is to eventually roll out tech and strategies from the pilot to all 185 county schools, with Baltimore students going fully 1:1 by the 2017-2018 academic year. For a list of the ten lucky schools that will lead the way, check out the BCPS press release."
