"West Chicago Community High School strives to promote and provide growth experiences in Learning, Leading, and Living."
At West Chicago Community High School, preparing students to be meaningful contributors and impactful leaders in society is a top priority. In the 21st Century, this means teaching students to be effective and resourceful at using technology and information, as well as teaching students through a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum. Moving to a one-to-one learning environment where every student has a Chromebook to use as an engaging learning tool is a clear means for helping students at WeGo become 21st Century ready. Students now have greater opportunities to direct their learning, access more information, and engage a larger community in intellectual discourse. Learning and studying are no longer restricted by the pages in a book or the four walls of the classroom or the hours of the school day. The pervasive integration of technology into the school environment and culture at WeGo will truly prepare students for Learning, Living, and Leading.
“With access to personal portable technologies in a wireless environment students, can learn at their own pace, ability levels, and take advantage of the worldwide experiences and resources available online and just in time. Teachers become facilitators of powered up learning experiences – meaningfully linking technology to curriculum and instruction.”
