Since 2016, Sunshine Harvester PS has provided students with 1:1 notebook devices. While many schools have BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs, we saw this approach as problematic in our community, where such a program leads to clear 'haves' and 'have nots'. Instead, we provide each student with a Chromebook for use at school.
Chromebooks are a new kind of computer where everything is done through the Internet. They have many advantages in educational settings and are becoming devices of choice in many schools.
We also adopted Google Apps for Education (now called Google Workspace for Education) as our main platform for online learning. We use educational apps from Google and other compatible apps such as Seesaw, to create content, run online classrooms and provide feedback to students.
