CA Superintendent Aiming to Improve Technology of State's Schools

Posted Monday, April 21st 2014 @ 6pm  by KFBK News

California's Superintendent is aiming to improve technology in the state's schools.

Superintendent Tom Torlakson says upgrading classroom electronics will enhance learning opportunities. 'It's a computer program, an application that can track the level you're at and guide you individually.'

'The student will know what they have to do to learn a certain concept and they go back and practice it and try different angles until they learn it,' he says. 

Torlakson says the upgraded computers will even help with the state's new assessment testing system.

He says 'It will also give diagnostic information - these new computerized assessments to let you know along the way how well are our students doing? How much are they learning?'

Some of his recent recommendations could be helped by a 1.25 billion dollar grant state schools recently received for Common Core implementation.
