Chromebooks are Coming!
Many of you noticed that the registration packet indicated that Emerson will be using Chromebook carts this school year, and that students will be using Google Apps for Education. This exciting development, made possible by the district technology committee, will allow Emerson to better prepare students for the annual common core testing every spring. This testing, done on computers, can be challenging if you don't have enough experience in using computers. Most sites only have one or two computer labs, so in order to ensure that all students have access to computers regularly, the district has purchase four mobile labs for each junior high school. Students will use these labs just like they use the regular computer labs, completing school projects, researching, and completing word processing and presentation software. In addition, these labs will give us the opportunity to practice the testing experience before the tests are administered in the spring of 2015. Attached is an article about the Chromebooks from our Department of Learning and Technology. Questions? Contact your school administrator!
