Superintendent’s Message


Kindgrtn Chromebooks


Kindergarten Chromebooks

Recently, our school board was able to hear from Ms. Beth Dabney, District Technology Coach, about next year’s rollout of Chromebooks for our kindergarten through 2nd grade students. Ms. Dabney shared both the reasoning for going this route and what skills our students should develop by using Chromebooks.  In 2nd grade, we will have one device per child while the other two grades will share one device per five students to use in group activities. Much time and research was utilized to determine, not only the best device, but the best use for this age student. Several questions, such as, “Is this age too young for a device?”, “Will they struggle with fine and gross motor skills if they spend too much time on a device?”, continue to be addressed. Chromebooks will be used as a tool to help students build foundational skills necessary to be successful in the future. Students will not be sitting idly while consuming information on their Chromebooks, they will be able to create content themselves! They will be able to capture the learning that is going on in their classrooms. They will have new opportunities to show what they know and explain their reasoning. Finally, our teachers will go through continuous professional development and training to help ensure technology is being used appropriately and effectively in their classrooms. 

But what will these Chromebooks truly offer our K-2 students? According to Ms. Dabney, students will be able to document their learning through apps such as Seesaw - a digital portfolio that parents have access to. It will help open a window into our classrooms with potential to strengthen home-school relationships and allow parents to see the different activities and skills practiced throughout the school day. Chromebooks will also assist our students while practicing instructional programs such as iReady. iReady provides personalized student instruction targeted to unique areas of need. This is a great tool for helping students with learning gaps “catch up” as well as allowing students to move beyond what is currently being taught in their classroom. In addition, Chromebooks will help students practice their keyboarding skills and learn to research using online applications. Finally, Chromebooks will help students create and turn in content digitally using Google Apps for Education and Google Classroom. We look forward to seeing the results of what technology in the classroom can do to enhance learning at an earlier age.
