Verizon Innovative Learning
At the start of the 2019 school year, Barcelona Elementary, Catalina Ventura, Granada Elementary School, Madrid Neighborhood School, Sevilla Elementary School and Simpson Elementary will be joining the Verizon Innoative Learning education initiative. In partnership with Digital Promise, the initiative equips every student and teacher in the school with a device and up to a four-year 4G LTE data plan. In addition to the free technology and access, the schools receive extensive teacher training and support along with the opportunity to engage in powerful teaching and learning that leverages technology in and out of the classroom. Over the course of the initiative, Verizon Innovative Learning will also provide the opportunity for students to leverage emerging technology such as augmented & virtual reality, artificial intelligence, 3D design and internet of things. “We could not be more proud to be partnering with Verizon to update our schools’ technology across our district,” said Alhambra Superintendent Mark Yslas. “We know these solutions will help further connect our students and promote a social and global consciousness we strive for within our schools.”
Students from across the district spent a school day learning more about the technology they use daily courtesy of Apple Education. Apple Specialist Nora taught the students new tips to use on their iPads; for them to implement on future assignments and projects.
