Science Leadership Academy (SLA), a partnership high school between The School District of Philadelphia and The Franklin Institute, will deploy Dell Chromebook 11.
Dell Chromebooks will be used by students, teachers and administrators to support SLA’s college-preparatory curriculum with a focus on science, technology, mathematics and entrepreneurship, said Dell in a statement.
SLA also partnered with The Franklin Institute and Dell to launch the first “Center of Excellence in Learning,” a resource for educators for best practices in inquiry-driven, project-based learning, technology access models and one-to-one computing initiatives.
Chris Lehmann, founding principal, the Science Leadership Academy, said: “The Dell Chromebook 11 gives our students access to their apps and content from anywhere and enables us to integrate learning into every facet of student lives, whether in the classroom, in a lab or at home.”
SLA received more than $620,000 in grant money and education technology from Dell to continue to build on their legacy of inquiry-based learning.
Dell will help SLA scale their model of inquiry-driven, project-based learning across the nation through the new Center of Excellence in Learning that serves as a resource of best practices for other educators.
