As students become more adept at using chromebooks and other forms of technology to support their learning, we should see several things:Technology will help prepare students for their future careers, which will inevitably include the use of wireless technology; students will be able to access the most up-to-date information quicker and easier than ever before, and make better decisions about the most appropriate information to use; using technology gives students additional ways in which they can interact with their classmates and students in other schools by encouraging collaboration; Technology helps students take more control over their own learning. They will become better at learning how to make their own decisions and become better thinkers, ultimately resulting in stronger achievement.
More curiosity and engagement in learning to find out more information and solve relevant problems using multiple resources and skills. Lessons and assignments that involve collaboration and communication, which is a common requirement of today’s employers.
We will be providing updates in our school newsletters and websites regarding how chromebooks are being used to support your student’s learning Best of all - ask your child what they are learning and doing with their new tool.
We will post information on the website as we cull resources. A quick Google search for using a Chromebook will find a plethora of resources on use of this tool.
