• HCS Personalized Digital Learning

    image The Vision of Horry County Schools' Personalized Digital Learning Initiative is to transform teaching and learning by immersing all students in rich, authentic, relevant, personalized digital learning experiences that lead to college and career readiness and enable deeper learning across the disciplines. 

    Horry County Schools' Personalized Digital Learning Initiative (PDL) has placed personal computing devices in the hands of students in grades 5-12 and on a shared model in grades 3 and 4.  We are in the middle of a journey of change with the primary objective to transform the delivery methods of our classrooms to match the needs of the modern student.
