For the School District of Lee County in Fort Myers, Florida, two statewide initiatives spurred an IT transformation that is, in turn, helping to make digital learning easier. First, Florida required districts to transition from paper-based to online testing. Then the state mandated that districts use digital materials for half of all classroom instruction. “We thought, ‘Since we are being forced into using digital content, and Chromebooks are becoming a great option and have keyboards so they can be used for online testing, that might be the right choice for us,’’” says Dwayne Alton, director of IT support.
