Overview

Located northwest of Chicago, Township High School District 211 is the largest high school district in Illinois, serving more than 12,000 students and employing nearly 1,000 faculty members. In 2014, the district launched a 1:1 technology initiative to provide every student, teacher, librarian, teaching assistant, and administrator with a personal iPad for use in school and at home.

To give teachers more opportunities to integrate technology with classroom instruction, three of the district's five high schools have begun subscribing to Flipster®, EBSCO's next-generation digital magazine solution that allows users to read magazines on computers or mobile devices.

Schaumburg High School Library became the first in the district to launch Flipster and currently subscribes to 20 magazine titles, including Consumer Reports, Newsweek, Us Weekly, and People en Español. As a result, teachers are more frequently using magazine articles in their class lessons, students are engaging more often in leisure reading, and the library is seeing a healthy return on its investment.
