Mr Morgan said the following in regards to the trial
“The Chromebooks were very easy for students to use and it did not take long at all before the students were able to manage the devices effectively. The Chromebooks have a wide range of educational apps that are beneficial for teaching and learning and include google classroom, google docs and book widgets. When beginning class each day students were always asking ‘are we going to be using the Chromebooks today’ in excitement”.
At St John Paul II Catholic College, we value your child’s education and we believe that the 1 to 1 Parent Purchase/Caregiver Chromebook Program will allow your child to develop confidence, creativity and productivity through the use of technology in the classroom that will prepare them for the impacts of technologies in the digital world.
The 1 to 1 program will equip each student with a Chromebook to use at school and at home, enabling students to have 24/7 access to resources and learning materials.
Parents with students starting at St John Paul II in 2022 are NOT to purchase a Chromebook before the Technology Information is distributed in September 2021.
In the instance where you may already own a Chromebook it is important that you still attend to understand the minimum requirements for the device and the applications as outlined below.
