As technology continues to dramatically shift and change the way we communicate and learn, Pemberton Township Schools remains in the forefront of using technology in the teaching and learning process. In 2015, the district embarked on an ambitious one-to-one tablet initiative, with the goal of having every student in grades 6-12 working with tablet technology provided by the district, and to have at least one classroom set of tablets for every grade level in each school by 2018. The computer-to-student ratio is 1 to 2.5, surpassing the nationally prescribed goal of 1 computer for every five students. In addition, the District Technology Plan provides for classroom computers and mobile wireless laptop computer labs, while stationary computer labs and state-of-the-art media centers provide students across the district with Internet access and the finest technology available.
The BlackBoard Learn program provides teachers with web-based technology to interact with students through individualized class pages. The student information system, Genesis, provides a parent module that allows parents to access their child’s grades, attendance and discipline information. As well as serving as powerful communication tools, these technologies are helping the district move toward becoming a paperless environment.
