As the fifth largest school district in the nation and last year's 1st place Digital School District winner, CCSD will be hosting its 2nd site visit April 25-27, 2012.

Students today are growing up in a society where personal devices connect them to the world 24 hours per day, seven days per week. They expect to learn with technology, in real-world contexts, doing things that matter. Student engagement in learning is dependent on high quality teaching and learning, informed by data and information. But in this 21st Century, it also requires innovative uses of technology and digital resources to engage students fully in exciting, interesting, rigorous, interdisciplinary, authentic studies. The Clark County School District is stepping up to that challenge. It recognizes the potential for personalizing learning for the diversity of the student population it serves, the power of participatory and collaborative learning through communication and social networks, and the value in production of authentic, real-world work that local and global communities value.
