Ursuline High will soon implement a “1:1 Program” for the freshman class, which will graduate in 2022.
The program, which will begin at the start of the 2018-19 school year, will provide each member of the freshman class with a Chromebook.
The total cost is $50,000 and has been funded by alumni support and an anonymous donor.
The “1:1 Program” provides students with personal portable computers to enhance opportunities for learning. The devices help schools engage the digital generation by nurturing individual learning experiences. Chromebooks will allow students to more effectively use Google Classroom, a learning management platform used extensively by Ursuline faculty.
It engages teachers and students both inside and outside of the classroom and allows teachers to customize instruction, provide immediate feedback and bring outside resources into the classroom.
Classroom pages are designed by classroom teachers to best complement their daily instruction.
Ursuline High intends to provide each subsequent freshman class with a laptop.
