The Mooresville Technology Revolution

Three years ago, the Mooresville Graded School District began providing laptops to every student in grades 4-12. This made MGSD one of the only entirely digital districts in the US. John Tulenko and producer Audrey Baker of Learning Matters explored their work on a segment that aired on the PBS NewsHour for April 8, 2011.

Additionally, Mooresville's Superintendent, Dr. Mark Edwards, and their CTO, Dr. Scott Smith, were interviewed by the SAS Institute on the importance of creating a data-driven culture.

The interviews can be viewed here.

Dr. Scott Smith is on the Board of Directors for NCTIES.

Is your district doing something great? Please share it with NCTIES.
