One-To-One Computing Highlighted

28-May-2013

The Fond du Lac High School’s 1-to-1 computing initiative was showcased for members of the legislature’s Education Committee at the State Capitol last week. State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt says he had already seen it during a visit to the school, but thought it might benefit others. A team of teachers, students, coordinators and administrators from the District presented an overview of the technological advances such as the use of Chromebooks, Google Apps and the web. Thiesfeldt says the presentation wasn’t made exclusively to committee members. The visit to the State Capitol was last Thursday.

I've heard from several students that they feel that the money could be used on other resources that would benefit them better. They feel that the chromebooks are a waste of time and money.

IF the teachers don't utilize the technology in every way - this is a waste. Just to have a device to have one is not a wise decision. Its up to the teachers and staff to make this work.

This was the first year of this and some teachers are adjusting to the 1:1 ratio but it is getting a lot better. Some teachers that excel in the use of them are Mr. Walter, Mr. Sitter, Mrs. Bates and Mr. Poquette to name a few. I think the chromebooks are really helping kids and are going to continue to help in aiding teachers educate their students.
