By 2015, all 4,000 students who attend school in Carol Stream Elementary District 93 could have their own computer to use in the classroom. The district is rolling out its so-called “1:1 learning initiative” that will put new iPads and MacBook Airs in the hands of students and teachers to use as learning and teaching tools. Teachers will receive training on how to use the devices beginning this fall, and students in sixth grade and kindergarten will have use of the computers starting in January. District 93 is enlisting the services of the Pearson Education Company for training of teachers and staff. Other Illinois school districts that are implementing similar programs with Pearson are located in downstate Mendon, Jerseyville and Rushville.
