1Vision Program in Bryan Attracts Attention Statewide

By  | 

School districts from across the state headed to a Bryan middle school to see how technology is changing the kids' learning experience.

Students at Stephen F. Austin had the opportunity to show off the school's 1Vision plan.

It was four years ago that the Technology Immersion Pilot grant made it possible for all students and teachers to use laptops in the classroom.

Students at the school say the program has made all the difference.

"With having a computer, you can get stuff done a lot faster than having to look off the book, then write it down," Eighth Grader Stephani Whisenant said. "It's a lot more efficient and organized, and it's a lot easier to keep track of."

The technology utilizes classroom instruction with curriculum to keep students engaged in learning.
