Fullerton School District's focus on 21st century teaching and learning includes the innovative use of technology to promote communication, collaboration, and creativity. The District has a variety of technology integration initiatives that emphasize 21st century skills to make the curriculum more relevant and engaging. One such program is the nationally-recognized 1:1 laptop program, now in its eighth year.
Students at three Fullerton School District school sites are using laptop computers both at school and at home, seven days a week. In this 24/7 program, students in grades two through eight are carrying Apple MacBook computers to their classes.
Laptops are enhancing teaching and learning for all students in grades two through eight at Robert C. Fisler School, and in the GATE classrooms and the fourth through sixth grade classrooms at Hermosa Drive Elementary. A group of students at Nicolas Junior High School are also using laptops in selected classes through their Anytime-Anywhere program.
Additionally, students at Orangethorpe Elementary in fourth through sixth grade, Pacific Drive Elementary in sixth grade, and Maple Elementary in third through sixth grade, are utilizing laptops throughout the day at school in a modified 1:1 program.
