Challenge to Excellence Charter School (C2E) Uses Android Tablets with Google Play for Education to Support K-3 Learners

In this webinar, you’ll hear directly from educators at the Challenge to Excellence Charter School (C2E) in Parker, Colorado. The educators at C2E wanted younger learners to benefit from flexible and fun classroom tools, while learning the knowledge-seeking skills that would serve them well in later school years. They adopted Android tablets with Google Play for Education for first, second, and third-grade classrooms. The new tools have helped encourage creative thinking by teachers and students, and new ways to get information — like sharing photos from a student’s trip to India, or using an online Hangout to talk to a real-live World War II veteran.

How a Texas District went Google: New Caney Helps Close the Achievement Gap with Extensive 1:1 Chromebook Program

In this webinar, you’ll hear directly from Dustin Hardin, Director of Technology at New Caney Independent School District (New Caney ISD). You’ll hear about the three year journey New Caney ISD took from not having any wireless access in their 14 campuses to starting a 1:1 program with Chromebooks. This will include a brief overview of all the milestones in the three year period (moving from a legacy email system to Gmail, automating student accounts, etc.), how the decision was made for Chromebooks, and most importantly, how they afforded the 1:1 program.


Measuring the Effectiveness of 1 to 1 Initiatives

Has your district’s student computing initiative been successful? Has it positively impacted learning outcomes? Moving from substitutive to transformational teaching practices is a journey and providing the right roadmap and development opportunities is essential for success. Clear Creek ISD started on this journey 3 years ago with a decision to provide devices to every student, grades 4 – 12, across the entire district. Midway through a 30,000 tablet deployment, CCISD is now seeing the positive impact and has learned many valuable lessons along the way.
