Transforming Learning in the Classroom, Campus & Community
Transforming Learning in the Classroom, Campus and Community (TLC3) is a bold plan that places an electronic learning device into the hands of every student.
McAllen ISD students are engrossed in a world of incredibly thought-provoking, discussion-igniting learning experiences available at the click of a button. It’s inquiry in the classroom, integrating technology, igniting higher-level thinking and prompting students to delve deeper into issues at all levels and in all subjects.
Students are empowered with the skills needed to excel in the 21st century.
McAllen ISD may be the largest district in the nation working to place the latest in mobile technology into the hands of all of its students—from high school seniors down to kindergarten.
- iPads for all students in grades 1-12.
- iPod Touch Devices for all students in grades Pre-K-Kindergarten
A cutting-edge move that has the state and the country taking notice
This notion has not gone unnoticed. Mainstream media including The Associated Press, The San Antonio Express-News, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Parent & Child magazine, Texas Monthly magazine’s website, NBC Latino network and National Public Radio affiliates have shed light on it. Education publications including Texas School Business, Education Week, Scholastic Administrator, The Journal and Texas Lone Star have devoted attention to this endeavor as well.
