iLearn: D-87 seeks to improve education with increased technology
Using their cell phones during class was once a taboo, but Glenbard Township High School District 87 students are now encouraged to bring their devices to class as part of ongoing district efforts to enhance student learning through technology.
The District 87 Board of Education approved a new policy to establish the "Bring Your Own Technology" program Aug. 26 to allow students to use smartphones and tablets in class, based on teacher discretion.
This latest initiative joins a pilot program started last year in the district that puts iPads in the hands of students in two to four classes at each Glenbard high school in order to test the full integration of technology in the classroom before implementing any program on a large scale.
