HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
Huntsville is on the fast track to learning when it comes to technology in the classroom.
Huntsville City Schools launched its digital conversion in 2012.
Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynski said the primary learning tools are now the teacher and multiple digital resources. He said this has increased student achievement, generated better math scores, and it gives the district a better idea where improvements need to be made.
"Huntsville has always been a showplace for our country - from Marshall to what goes on the Arsenal. It's very appropriate that the school system is too," said Wardynski. "With our digital conversion, the whole world, particularly the U.S., is looking at what we are doing. This is the way of the future."
Wardynski said the digital transition has helped on days where students were out due to weather.
They can use laptops and iPads to keep up with the curriculum.
