Wiseburn USD believes that technology is a tool to facilitate one's learning, but is not meant to replace traditional human interaction and learning. Technology brings together a plethora of resources, contributing to a safe learning environment where students can Engage, Empower, and Elevate their academic and critical thinking skills.
Technology has become an integral part of our daily lives, and it's important for elementary and middle school students to be fluent in its use. It provides a wealth of information and resources that can help students learn in innovative and engaging ways while preparing students for the future job market, where digital skills are highly valued in an increasingly digital world.
Wiseburn Unified School District has successfully implemented a 1-to-1 Chromebook environment in grades 1-8. Kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students utilize a combination of Chromebooks and iPads for digital learning.
The Future Ready Framework
At the heart of Future Ready is the research-based Future Ready Framework, a robust structure for digital learning planning and implementation. With personalized student learning at the center, the Wiseburn Unified School District is working to align each of the seven (7) key categories, called "Gears" in order to ensure a successful digital conversion.
The 7 Gears are as follows:
- Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment
- Use of Space and Time
- Robust Infrastructure
- Data and Privacy
- Community Partnerships
- Personalized Professional Learning
- Budget and Resources
Project Lead The Way (PLTW) provides transformative learning experiences for K-12 students and teachers across the U.S.
In Wiseburn, PLTW students enjoy an engaging, hands-on classroom environment that empowers them to develop in-demand knowledge and skills.
All PLTW teachers receive the training, resources, and support necessary to engage students in real-world learning.
Our PLTW pathways in engineering, architecture, robotics and more engage students in challenging activities, projects, and problems empowering them to solve real-world challenges, and inspiring them to reimagine how they see themselves.
Presently PLTW is offered in grades 4-8. In the middle grades students can also choose to participate in local competitions, Hackathon-a-Challenges, which encourage collaboration with other middle school students and grade 5 students to tackle challenges.
PLTW stands out as a signature practice in the Wiseburn Unified School District.
