MIDDLETOWN -- On the first early dismissal of
the school year, New Holland-Middletown Elementary District 88 staff
received training on the use of Google apps and Google Chromebooks
in the classroom.
Training was conducted at NH-M by Dominic Manola of Leyden High
School District 212 in Cook County. Leyden went 1:1 with 3,500
Google Chromebooks last year and since that time has learned the
"do's and don'ts" of going 1:1.
The presentation was titled
"Preparing students for the future ... whatever that may look like."
The training focused on organizing student work folders in the cloud
and its impact on assessment, such as Open Class and Socrative.
Teachers were able to create, share and collaborate on several
activities "live" via Google docs on the Web.
For more information on Leyden's 1:1 initiative and its positive
impact on student achievement, see the following case study:

Recently, the NH-M 88 Board of Education adopted several board
policies regarding the use of district-owned technology in
preparation for the deployment of Chromebooks next month to every
student in fifth through eighth grade.
