  4. 4. Fiber-optic network (2002 Bond) LPS Technology Innovation Grant (2006) ($1,000,000 from BOE) Wireless Network (2007) Powering Up Writing in 5 th Grade (2008) ($225,000 from CDE) 9 th Grade Professional Development (2009) ($93,942 from CDE) 2. Where we have been
  5. 5. “ The English class I once knew involved my handwriting out things at 25 wpm into a lined and bound composition notebook. [The teachers] would grade them, theirs the only eyes to search the words we had written. With laptops, it’s like taking the leap from unheard of to notability . It’s the ability to finally expand on your boundaries and do something different.” Stephanie, 2009. 9 th grade student blog comment, LPS
  6. 6. “ I think having a laptop computer helps the students write better because when kids write with paper and pen, they really don't like writing because it makes their hands get tired. Students, with a happy heart, write more, and get excited. Mixing [my teacher’s] teaching of writing and the computers, kids get really excited to write. Even right now, I don't want to stop writing. My hands get all itchy to type.” Narah, 2009. 5 th grade student blog comment, LPS
  7. 7. Vision and Mission Inspired Learning Communication Productivity Information Citizenship Through an elegant synthesis of humanity and technology, we will inspire a command of information, masterful communication, creative productivity and ethical citizenship in every learner. 3. A new vision
  8. 8. “ This is a call to action: A call to help our students compose often, compose well and through these composings, become the citizen writers of our country, the citizen writers of our world, and the writers of our future.” Yancey, K. B., 2009. Writing in the 21 st Century , National Council of Teachers of English, Urbana, IL.
  9. 9. “ Five years after the initial implementation of the laptop program, students’ writing scores on Maine’s statewide test had significantly improved. Furthermore, students scored better the more extensively they used their laptops in developing and producing their writing. And finally, the evidence indicated that using their laptops in this fashion helped them to become better writers in general, not just better writers using laptops.” Silvernail, D. L. & Gritter, A. K., 2007. Maine’s middle school laptop program: Creating better writers. University of Southern Maine, Gorham, ME.
