"All Means All - Creating Rich & Flexible Learning Environments" by Digital Learning & Infrastructure Team, Monroe School District
Rachelle Butz, Executive Director of Digital Learning, Anne Proctor, Manager of Technology Services, DeAnn Hermes, Coordinator of Digital Learning & Program Development, and Robert Pohl, Coordinator of Digital Learning & Program Development

In 2014, the Monroe community passed Proposition 2, a six-year, $7.5M, Technology Levy, to advance student learning using digital resources. Modernizing classroom display technologies to support group learning and providing greater access was a high priority for teachers and their students. With an outdated infrastructure, aging projectors, mismatched interactive whiteboard tools across classrooms, and limited access to ongoing professional development, we had to leverage and stretch every possible resource to provide a supportable standardized model that could meet our District’s vision and fulfill our promise to our community. Monroe had never undertaken a project with a scope of this magnitude at one time; making bold choices to upgrade and replace our infrastructure, modernize classroom technology, and to deploy student devices all at once. By developing a comprehensive planning and selection process, Monroe was able to fulfill more than anyone had ever expected with the moonshot of changing the trajectory of current instructional delivery and radically impact student learning in 367 classrooms. In this session, you’ll learn how Monroe took Moonshot Thinking to prepare teachers to boldly go where they’ve never gone before!
