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.
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.
In this webinar, you’ll hear directly from Richland School District Two in Columbia, South Carolina about how they successfully built and launched a 1:1 computing initiative with Google Chromebooks and Apps for Education. This program serves their 27,000 students spanning across 18 elementary schools, seven middle schools, five high schools, four magnet centers and two alternative schools. They are also piloting tablets with Google Play for Education. The district wanted to equip students with technology skills to succeed in the 21st century: creativity, critical thinking, communication and problem solving.
In this webcast you will hear how teachers have used 3D printers to engage students at all levels; from elementary to high school. For example, we will discuss how middle-schoolers are using an uPrint SE 3D printer to create a custom ear bud holder. We will also talk about a 4th grade class creating money clips from initial design to end-use print. In regards to these projects and more, we will discuss the importance of writing the lessons into the curriculum.
