Green Tech Chromebook Program
The focus of the Chromebook Program at Green Tech is to prepare students for their future in a world of digital technology and information. As we navigate the 21st century, excellence in education requires that technology, including access to the Internet, be readily available and seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program. The primary learning tool of these 21st century students at Green Tech is the Chromebook, a web-oriented device that provides the opportunity to connect student learning to all of the resources and information available online, anywhere, at any time.
The individual use of Chromebooks is a way to empower students to learn at their full potential, to communicate and collaborate with analytical thinking and problem solving, and to prepare them for high school, college and the workplace. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. To the contrary, teachers are critical to the effective use of technology in the learning process. To facilitate that, we have put in place the support structure to enable our teachers to learn about, implement, and enhance the integration of technology in instruction. Learning results from the continuous dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents, and the extended community. Together, we will reach our goal of using technology and applications to further enhance our instruction; provide project and problem-based learning; infuse critical thinking skills; ask “non-Google-able” questions; and capture those teachable moments in real time.
The policies, procedures and information contained in this document apply to Chromebooks and all other technology devices used by students at Green Tech. Administrators and teachers may set additional requirements for computer use at their school sites or in their classrooms. The Chromebook and other district-issued devices, email/Google accounts, are the property of Green Tech and, as a result, may be subject to inspection at any time. The student should have NO expectation of privacy of materials found on a Chromebook, their Google Drive or Gmail account. Supplied devices are an educational tool and not intended for personal use such as: gaming, social networking, or high end computing.
