1:1 LEARNING INITIATIVE
The students of the Cole R-V School District use Google products daily to complete educational goals. These platforms include, but are not limited to, Google Mail, Google Classroom, and Google Drive. We hope to make our 1:1 Initiative successful through collaboration among parents, educators and students. The use of Chromebooks for teaching and learning in Cole R-V Schools is an immense opportunity to accelerate the learning for all of our students and to enhance an already strong academic program. We look forward to open communication and to a robust partnership among our community members, parents, students and staff in support of 1:1.
The purpose of our 1:1 initiative is to put current technology into the hands of all students to help enhance, personalize and accelerate the rigor of our academic program. The Cole R-V School District purchases and owns Chromebooks and iPads distributing them to students to use for educational purposes during the academic year.
Please review the following handbook, which provides more detail in regards to our 1:1 learning initiative, and return the handbook acknowledgement in order to receive your child's device.
GOOGLE APPS FOR EDUCATION
As a leader in providing and using technology to expand learning opportunities for students, the Cole R-V School District is proud to partner with Google Apps for Education (GAFE).
Google Apps for Education (GAFE) is a comprehensive online suite of productivity applications, provided at no charge for educational institutions. GAFE will make it possible for students to use the Internet to:
- work together virtually on documents, presentations and projects;
- store files online, often eliminating the need for flash drives between home and school;
- use email addresses for communication in a safe and structured environment;
- access online learning tools for storytelling, concept mapping, video editing and more.
Cole County R-V School District appreciates your support as we work to leverage collaboration tools for 21st century teaching and learning!
