Now deploying learning technology to all of Maine's students and teachers grades 7 - 12.

 

 

State of Maine grants schools more flexibility in choosing technology

 

AUGUSTA – Thousands of Maine students will be firing up Hewlett Packard laptop computers next school year. On Friday, the Maine Department of Education announced HP as its preferred contractor in the Maine Learning Technology Initiative’s latest bid process.

 

The Hewlett Packard ProBook 4440 running Windows 8 software will be made available as the primary technology and learning solution as part of the Initiative.

 

“It is important that our students are using technology that they will see and use in the workplace,” said Governor Paul R. LePage. “This is the lowest-priced proposal, and the laptops use an operating system that is commonly used in the workplace in Maine. These laptops will provide students with the opportunity to enhance their learning and give them experience on the same technology and software they will see in their future careers.”

 

The MLTI is an integral part of the Department’s strategy to achieve the new Common Core State Standards, as well as implement new proficiency-based learning systems.
