Kent School Tablet Learning Transparent and Real

At Kent (School, Kent, CT), technology is part of the fabric of education. We use it in many ways in many places every day. It is transparent and real.

We are a pioneer in the Anytime Anywhere Learning (AAL) program (1995) and were one of the first 30 schools to commit to this integration of laptops in education. Our program includes classroom use of technology and campus-wide use of tablet PCs in a comprehensively networked, fully switched environment with high speed access to the both the commercial Internet and the academic Internet2. We are much more like a small college than a high school which makes sense -- that's where we prepare our students to succeed.
