1:1 Start-up Kit
This kit is a starting point for integrating technology into your curriculum. Originally created by Richland School District Two, it is in the process of being updated and aligned to technology available in our district.
This program is coming in November! You will be able to choose which technology you wish to learn more about and implement in your classroom. Doing so will earn you badges and recertification points. More information will be provided soon!
Apps and Extensions
Students do not have access to download any apps or extensions from the Chrome store, so if you come across any that you feel they need for your class, please let us know by completing this form! Please allow up to two weeks for us to vet and enable the apps/extensions. Once we have several apps/extensions approved, we will make available a list of all approved apps.
Monitoring your classroom will become much easier with the implementation of Hapara Highlights! You will be able to view your students' browsing activities and focus their browsing by remotely opening and closing tabs. You will even have the ability to lock screens for a period of time to focus their activity on a certain page or on you! With the ability to take "snaps", you can save student behavior so that you can engage them in conversations about their online learning and behavior. You will receive training on this software soon!
