Rural Kingville is on a mission to become the Next Big Generation of Smart Cities.
The community of less than 1,000 people is home to one of the largest populations of young adults in Louisiana, which is why it is such a perfect fit for a smart city.
In 2017, the Kingville School District established the Smart Community Center to help young adults navigate the new technologies and innovations that are changing education, business and society.
The center offers a variety of activities for children, from STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) to English, math, and English as a second language.
Smart communities are the next generation of leaders.
And, this community is hungry to become one.
The school district has worked with SmartCities Louisiana and other local communities to develop an interactive learning platform that will enable students to use Google and Facebook to connect with their peers, learn and connect with the world.
The platform will also help teachers, principals and school staff create a digital curriculum for their students.
The Kingville SmartCites is a community resource, and the Kingland-Baton Rouge School District is helping build a curriculum for its students.
We’re so excited to have the school district working with us to bring these great innovations to students through the SmartCits curriculum.
In addition to creating a platform for students to engage in activities, the Smart Cites will also connect them with teachers, students and staff at schools in other parts of the state, including Baton Rouge, Mobile, Monroe and New Orleans.
The Smart Cite will be available to all students in Kingville for the fall semester.
The goal is to build a strong community for students, teachers, parents, and school officials to connect and build on, and this initiative is a great way to begin.
Our Smart Citing community is made up of teachers, administrators, and other community members who want to be a part of the Next Generation of leaders that will be transforming education and the economy of the Great Lakes State.
They want to get involved in the future of the City of Louisiana.
The city of Louisiana is poised to grow, and so are its residents.
In fact, the City is on track to add a whopping 2.8 million new jobs over the next five years.
The state of Louisiana has already announced the creation of more than 3,300 new jobs, with more expected to come, including more than 2,500 new jobs in rural communities.
SmartCiting will help the Kingvillians stay connected with their neighbors, neighbors in other states, and help build the future.
Smart Communities are transforming the lives of young people in Louisiana.
It’s important that the next generations of leaders understand the importance of connecting to each other and learning together, and they need the tools they need to help them do just that.
As a community, we are looking forward to creating the Next Great City for our young people and all the people of the State of Louisiana to succeed and prosper.
