Katy ISD Transforms Education with Mobile Learning
With constrained funding for education, Katy Independent School District needed to fundamentally change the mode of curriculum delivery, as old methods were no longer working.
Katy ISD used Cisco mobility solutions to implement a successful bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy and transform teaching and learning.
With the help of Cisco technology, Katy ISD has seen:
- A consistent improvement in test scores
- Unprecedented levels of teacher and student engagement
- New student enthusiasm for a system that includes their preferred devices
The new initiative gives students the freedom to use the tools they prefer and live with every day - smartphones, iPads, iPods, and any other devices they choose.
I really do feel this is a shift in education. It's not just the latest gimmick. This is what kids do automatically, and how they learn.Technology Integration Coordinator
