1:1 Chromebook Initiative

Our Model: 1:1 Computing
Every student in grades K-12 is provided with a district owned Chromebook. The Chromebook will be used in a variety of ways in the classroom. The focus is to provide students with multiple opportunities to research, collaborate and create. Students take the device home at night and on weekends. Its one way we can expand the learning outside of their traditional classroom.

1. Why did the district choose to go with a Chromebook over an iPad or a traditional laptop? 
After years of research, the district technology committee felt that the Chromebook was the best device to meet the goal of preparing students for life after high school. We felt that students need six key skills: Critical Thinking, Research, Collaboration, Adaptability, Communication and Presentation. The device was tested by Chagrin Falls students and teachers in actual classroom environments over a period of six months. The Chromebook, with its deep ties to Google Apps for Education, online assessment compatibility, ease of management, and overall cost was the clear choice.
