Bengals rookie Jackson Carman leans on Anthony Munoz for advice, guidance

“Duane Brown, Chris Myers,” said Su’a-Filo Tuesday, remembering the older vets that helped him. “There were a couple of guys a few years older who were real cool. Brandon Brooks. Derek Newton. They gave me advice on how to make sure to be a pro. Study habits. Taking care of their body.

“I’m just trying to do for Jackson what was done for me as a rookie,” Su’a-Filo said.

Technology is changing the learning game in the U.S. education system.

Prior to COVID-19, the Pleasanton Calif. Unified School District (PUSD) was already issuing a digital device to every middle and high school student. During the pandemic, the district expanded its 1-to-1 policy to all elementary-level students, as well.

“Anybody who needed a device got a device,” says Patrick Gannon, the district’s communications and community engagement coordinator. Thanks to that rapid deployment, “We were able to pivot 14,500 students from in-person to remote instruction in the course of a week.”

PUSD isn’t alone: Around the nation, virtual learning needs spurred rapid adoption of 1-to-1 policies across K-12 education. While the final numbers on device adoption aren’t in yet, “There’s clearly been a huge effort to secure more devices,” says Keith Krueger, CEO of the nonprofit Consortium for School Networking.
