About Anytime, Anywhere, Anyone Learning (AAAL)

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 a laptop every day in their Academic Block classes (Language Arts and History). Many of the students choose to bring their own laptop to school for this purpose. Some in-class loaner laptops are available for students who do not have their own laptop or tablet device. Students use these in-class loaners during the school day, and rely on their own computers at home.

Benefits of AAAL

The idea of providing one-to-one computing opportunities for students was something that seemed an impossible idea in 1996. Now, however, teachers in Clovis Unified (and in other school districts across the country) have proven not only that it can be done, but also how much it can benefit students:
  • Having access to an Internet-connected computer at all times has enabled teachers to more effectively improve students’ critical thinking skills. Having information so readily available allows students to explore topics in a deeper, more meaningful way. Students are engaged, motivated and ready to learn.
  • Laptop programs increase collaboration in two ways. First, the project-based nature of laptop classrooms leads to the formation of workgroups, which naturally increases collaboration. In addition, teachers are no longer the only ones controlling access to information. Anyone in class can become the expert in a particular topic. The bottom line is that students love to help others and laptops give them plenty of opportunities.
  • With the guidance of a teacher, individualized learning paths are enabled. A laptop computer provides students with a tool that enables them to learn at a pace and in a way that’s best for them. Many District teachers report that previously unsuccessful students blossom as the laptop re-engages them with learning.

The Clovis USD AAAL program received two very prestigious awards during the 2005-06 school year.  The first recognition came from the California School Boards Association which recognized the 1:1 computing initiative as a Golden Bell Award Winner.  The second recognition was from Computerworld’s Honors Program which identified the District’s AAAL program as a Finalist in its Education and Academia Division.  The other Finalists in this category were:  Columbia University School of Nursing, Duke University Health System, Florida State University, and the New York City Department of Education.

After observing the success of the AAAL program, the decision was made to expand into all 7th and 8th grade Academic Block classes in every intermediate school in the district. Since 2010, approximately 6500 intermediate students benefit from a 1-to-1 laptop program each year. A variety of tools are used to deliver the curriculum to students, including Google Apps, Office 365, online textbooks, and many other web-based tools and sites.
