1:1 CHROMEBOOKS IN-SCHOOL MODEL

Dear Harmony Families,

In the beginning of last school year (2013-14), Harmony Public Schools provided every student in grades 6 thru 12 with a Chromebook device. Students had access to Chromebooks 24/7, with the capacity to access a Chromebook both during the school day and at home. This year's 1:1 program represents a change from what was implemented before, with a move away from the take-home model and instead use Chromebooks in-school as classroom sets.

With 1:1 in-school model, we believe that students will experience a more focused and guided technology use in the classrooms and teachers will be able to facilitate technology integrated student learning in a more powerful and meaningful way. Read More..
