As a new member of the Innovative Education Team I was involved in a well-planned and well-executed phase two Chromebook roll-out. While visiting schools to distribute the hardware and share orientations in classrooms there were a number of Grade 10 students who expressed their excitement about receiving their own Chromebook.
There was definitely a positive “buzz” that reverberated throughout the schools.
“I love this!”
“I can’t wait to use it!”
“I feel prestigious!”
There was definitely a positive “buzz” that reverberated throughout the schools. After the orientation sessions, I observed many students sitting together and exploring their new devices. Their engagement from the start is exciting and it will be sure to increase as teachers bring the tools to life in the classroom and beyond. Many thanks to all the staff that supported the roll-outs and as Educational Technology Coaches we look forward to working together.
