Salem, N.H., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, is honoring four of its visionary K-12 education customers with the Enterasys Exemplary School Award for having demonstrated their educational commitment to implementing a personalized 21st century learning environment. The four winners embody the best in American education by striving to engage today's digital students through creating an individualized 24 x 7 mobile learning environment.

Award Winners:

  • Port Huron Area School District: Port Huron, Mich.
  • Stephenville Independent School District: Stephenville, Texas
  • Town of Enfield: Enfield, Conn.
  • Washington Unified School District: West Sacramento, Calif.

Executive Perspective:
Vala Afshar, chief marketing officer & chief customer officer, Enterasys, @ValaAfshar
"Enterasys is tremendously proud of the advances our visionary customers are making in mobility in their school districts, empowering teachers and students to achieve new levels of engagement and access. We applaud Port Huron Area School District, Stephenville Independent School District, the Town of Enfield and Washington Unified School District for their successes and look forward to seeing them drive other cutting-edge applications of mobility in learning environments."

Award Criteria:

  • Stimulate 24x7 Learning: To meet the demands of today's competitive global economy, schools must create lifetime learners. To promote this concept and qualify for the Enterasys Exemplary School Award, a school must institute a 1:1 or BYOD mobile learning environment.
  • Facilitate Individual Instruction: Learning is not a one-size-fits-all environment. Networks and resources must be individualized to permit secure per-user, per-device policies to allow every student to individually learn and excel.
  • Encourage Curricular Growth: To meet the demands of curricular change, a district must implement an infrastructure that readily adapts to curricular needs. Everyone learns differently, and the network must be prepared to meet the growing requirements of eBooks, streaming video and blended or flipped learning.
