Chromebooks and Google Apps

In 2016, Sunshine Harvester PS rolled out 1-1 devices for students in grades 1-6. Many schools are currently operating BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs.  We saw these as problematic in our community where such a program leads to clear 'haves' and 'have not's'. Instead, we provide each student with a Chromebook.

 

Chromebooks are a new kind of computer where everything is done through the Internet.  They have many advantages in educational settings and becoming devices of choice in many schools.  

 

At the same time, we also adopted Google Apps for Education as our main platform for online learning.  We use Google Apps to create content, run online classrooms a provide feedback to students.
