Overview:

LaRue County High School in Kentucky had elevated student achievement through traditional methods, yet the school district's superintendent believed it also needed a one-to-one laptop initiative to prepare students for college and potential careers.


Read this brief case study now to learn why the school deployed a Dell Latitude netbook running Windows 7 to each of its 760 students, aided by Dell Professional Learning Services, which helped the teachers bring to life a 21st-century learning environment that integrated netbooks into the curriculum on a daily basis.


One advantage is a post-collection analysis of the student's data. In the past, in order to manipulate or graphically analyze their data, students needed to enter it by hand into a computer and then use a spreadsheet program that really wasn't designed for their specific needs. Not anymore. Students are now able to monitor their data live during an experiment, allowing them to evaluate the effectiveness of the experiment in real time.


Check this resource out to learn more about why the superintendent desired this approach, how the district settled on the netbooks and more about the many benefits, including:



  • Increased student engagement

  • Better ability to meet new state literacy/writing standards

  • Customizable curriculums

  • And more
