The Northfield Board of Education was presented with the district’s Transformational Technology proposal at it’s Jan. 28 meeting. The proposal includes a 1:1 tablet computer initiative for students in grades 6 through 12 and a “pod” based approach at the elementary schools, using a ratio of one device per 3.5 students.
