iSchool Campus Wins Bid to Expand Utah's Smart School Program

Press Release

July 23, 2013

Salt Lake City — iSchool Campus has been selected by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) to continue deploying whole-school technology in Utah public schools through the expansion of the Smart School Technology Pilot Program. The expansion represents the broad scale implementation of technology using one-to-one mobile devices in the classroom. The iSchool Campus model offers a seamless conduit to advanced digital learning environments that directly speak to the native abilities of today’s students.

The Utah State Legislature provided additional funding for new schools in 2013-14 through SB 284. The program extension will allow additional schools from around the state the opportunity to implement whole-school technology, including iPads for each student and teacher. Based on a grant application process, as well as the availability of matching funds, schools were selected by the Utah State Office of Education (USOE) to participate in the pilot expansion.

“GOED is pleased to continue the partnership with USOE and iSchool Campus, together we look forward to fulfilling the mandate to educate a productive workforce that will keep Utah’s economic future bright,” said Spencer Eccles, GOED executive director.”

“We believe the Smart School model represents the future of education, and will provide Utah students with the skills and experience they need to thrive in the competitive digital economy they will enter.”

The iSchool Campus SmartSchool model provides:

  • One-to-one tablet deployment on any platform.
  • Complete security no matter where the tablet is used.
  • Access to assignments, tests, textbooks and other educational materials even when wireless and internet may not be available.
  • Software that integrates testing, assignments, learning management systems, analytics, instant messaging, textbooks and collaboration in real time.
  • Blanket wireless technology.
  • Professional development for teachers, administrators, IT professionals and parents.
  • Classrooms with surround-sound audio.
  • Interactive HD flat screen televisions.
