Technology brings 21st-century learning to Princeville schools

The Princeville School District located in Illinois, installed wireless infrastructure and purchased almost 1,000 Chromebooks since they started with the pilot project "One-to-one technology" in 2013. Students, teachers and teachers’ aides all have their own laptop computers.

Third-grade teacher Katie Carruthers told the Journal Star "Technology allows me to let other people teach the concept,” and she’s freed up to work with students who want to move ahead or devote more time to students struggling with a lesson. “I can assess more now just by watching what they’re doing than any test can show me.”

IT Leadership: Key Facts to Advance Ed Tech in America -- THE Journal

Milestone Communications has over 15 years of experience partnering with schools and school systems to provide local communities high-speed, wireless, broadband communication— while offering opportunities for increased revenue.

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) 2018 IT Leadership Survey was released and it noted the following: "School leaders place a high priority on cybersecurity and broadband/network capacity. When asked to rate the importance of privacy and security of student data, 68 percent of IT leaders indicated that it was more important than the prior year. For the fourth straight year, budget constraints are the top challenge facing school technology leaders, followed by the unavailability of relevant training and professional development, as well as the existence of silos in school districts."
