1:1 Information (Grades 3-12)
The Hudson Schools are very excited to be 1:1 with Chromebooks for all students in grades 3-12. This learning opportunity supplies each student in grades 3-12 with a Chromebook for their educational use. Teachers will continue to utilize Google Apps for Education as a learning management tool in our classrooms.

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." The integration of technology enhances opportunities for student research and project-based learning both in-class and at home.
This school year, sixth-grade students will be issued a Chromebook at Middle School Registration on Wednesday, August 9, 2017. Eleventh-grade students will be issued a Chromebook during homeroom on Thursday, August 17 or Friday, August 18, 2017.
The Hudson 1:1 program is designed to:
- 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 allows 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.
