Putting digital technology into the hands on children is on the forefront of the Lodi Unified School District board of trustees’ minds. Or at least, it is for trustee George Neely.
At Tuesday’s meeting, he proposed creating an all-digital K-8 school. Lessons would still take place in a physical classroom with a teacher, but all textbooks and classwork would be accessed through an iPad or laptop computer. Neely currently teaches at the Able Academy of Business, Law and Education, an all-digital charter school in Stockton.
