The vision of the Anytime, Anywhere, Anyone Learning with Laptops program (AAAL) in the Clovis Unified School District is to have any student in grades seven through twelve using a computer anytime they need to and anywhere they are. The AAAL program is available at all District intermediate schools.
The program is a partnership with parents, the school district, LaptopSchools.com and Lenovo to provide greater access to technology for students. We learned that when students have access to a laptop computer anytime and anywhere, powerful changes begin to occur in students’ schoolwork and in their learning.
The mainstay of the AAAL program is what is known as a laptop immersion class, where every student uses their own laptop every day. However, the schools also work hard to maximize the availability of the program using a variety of strategies. Some schools rotate classroom sets of computers to different classrooms for the students to use. Another strategy being used is the "in-class loaner" program, where District-owned laptops are kept in selected classrooms for the year. Students use these in-class loaners during the school day, and rely on their own computers at home.
