Lynn P. Moody, Superintendent of Rock Hill Schools, Discusses Their iRock Initiative
"We believe it is our responsibility to inspire and motivate students to be continuous learners. We know the needs of the future are different from the needs of the past and this requires us to transform how we teach. We are not afraid to learn with our students in creating these new learning experiences. As a result of this work, we will ensure our students are problem solvers, critical thinkers, collaborators, and communicators.
We want every student in Rock Hill Schools to have a mobile learning device for use at school and home. It will be personalized and customized through unlimited apps and digital textbooks based on the individual needs and learning style of students. It will allow students to access instruction and provide them with the flexibility to learn anytime and anywhere.
Our students must be prepared for the work environment of the future where mobile technology can be used to explore, research, and create solutions to real world challenges. Solving real world problems will make learning more relevant, challenging and engaging." -Lynn Moody, Superintendent of Rock Hill Schools
