Over the past several years we have been working to create a technology environment in every classroom that is essentially the same. This process started before we moved from our previous locations into our permanent home. Below is an overview of the technology.
- 55" - 65" LED 4K Television
- Chromecast wireless digital media player
- Chromebox research stations (optional for teachers)
Each year we have expanded the quantity of devices available for student use in the classroom with a goal of reaching a one-to-one device to student ratio, by classroom, in the 2018-19 school year. We are currently at a 4:3 student to device ratio. These devices are in charging carts that can be moved from classroom to classroom.
During the school day students at all grade levels may encounter the following devices while working in class.
- Chromebooks - Compact, lightweight, rugged laptops that run Google's Chrome OS. These devices are ideal for student use because they are easily managed in the enterprise environment, they are inexpensive and very durable. Below are the models we currently had deployed for student use in the school.
