“Educational content is now moving digital and is becoming available on the web, and by providing Chromebooks, this will be accessible on these devices. In addition to this, Google has announced their Google Play for Education which will feature content specifically for the education market.”
“Collaboration, communication, and organization!” At AGS we want our students to be able to collaborate on projects and share documents. We will be shifting our focus entirely to the Chromebook and Google Apps, where content is easy to produce and collaboration comes naturally.
The use of Chromebooks in the classroom is subject to the discretion of the individual teacher, but the teachers that allows the use of the Chromebooks sees a fundamental shift in the way they teach. With the students having access to content via the Internet, the teachers begin to focus on teaching learning skills and how to apply facts and figures to real-world applications.
In our experience the use of Google Apps has increased transparency and led to fewer misunderstandings between parents and teachers over assignments and due dates. An added bonus for parents is that it’s harder for the students to lose their homework.
