1:1 Information (Grades 6-12) 

 
The Hudson Schools are very excited to be 1:1 with Chromebooks for all students in grades 6-12.  This learning opportunity will supply each student in grades 6-12 with a Chromebook for their educational use beginning in August 2016.  Teachers will continue to utilize Google Apps for Education as a learning management tool in our classrooms.  Learn more about Google in the classroom by clicking this link: Going Google with Google Drive.

As you may know, Chromebooks are laptop devices designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet to utilize applications and documents “in the cloud”.  This integration of technology will enhance opportunities for student research or even project-based learning both in-class and at-home. Students will be issued a Chromebook at Middle School Registration or during homeroom during the first week of school at the High School.


The Hudson 1:1 initiative will:


  • Expand and enhance educational opportunities for students

  • Encourage integration of 21st century technology skills throughout the learning process

  • Use Google Classroom as the foundation for collaboration, transforming instruction and learning

  • Provide students with access to anytime, anywhere learning by harnessing cloud-based applications to extend learning time beyond the school day.


Students in Hudson have been using Google Apps for Education and Chromebooks for the past several years.  Providing students with the access to resources using their own device will allow them to have access to resources outside of the classroom walls during the traditional school day. Students will be able to collaborate with their peers through tools such as Google Docs, Classroom, Sheets, Slides, Gmail, and Hangouts. These tools will also enable students to create, access, manage, integrate, and evaluate information in all subject areas.
