Due to its small-schools model that allows teachers to really get to know each student, Frisco Independent School District is one of the fastest growing in the United States. Technology and e-learning systems are a big part of this success.
Frisco ISD, located about 30 miles north of Dallas, is one of the biggest school districts in the United States and enrolls more than 55.000 students distributed in 9 high schools, 16 middle schools, 40 elementary schools and 3 special programs schools. Its mission is to know every student by name and need, and to be able to this, the use of digital tools and e-learning systems is vital. E-learn Magazine spoke to Ashley Nelson, Professional Learning Coordinator at Frisco ISD Administration, to learn more about it.
“Blackboard Collaborate is a tool that helps us be consistent with our communication to the various campuses.”
