1:1 CHROMEBOOK INITIATIVE
PHILOSOPHY OF OUR 1:1 INITIATIVE
As a district, we have embarked on a journey to enhance our inquiry-based environment so that students can create their own solutions, improve research skills, and form their own opinions through the use of technology.
Our plan is to provide our students with an environment in which they can develop and demonstrate critical thinking skills, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
The single greatest skill for our students in the future is adaptability.
WHAT DOES A 1:1 MODEL PROVIDE?
An opportunity for students to demonstrate critical thinking skills and exhibit creativity
Presents a better opportunity to differentiate (individualize) learning
Demonstration of mastery of content in a variety of creative ways
Increased collaboration and contact time with the teacher and other students
Increased student engagement
The opportunity for distance learning
24/7 access to technology without the need to go somewhere else
Affords the opportunity for teachers and students to try new approaches and take education risks in order to grow as learners and professionals
Every Timberlane student will receive a Chromebook to use in all classes, as well as to take home.
Our mission is to continue to implement pedagogy to enhance inquiry-based learning, using technology as a tool.
For our learning community, it about about the learning...not the device.
