The Friday Tech Tip: Expanding the Elbert County School District 1:1 Program

Happy Friday afternoon everyone!

I hope that you are looking forward to a well deserved three day weekend.  Thanks to everyone for all of their hard work as we expand the 1:1 program.  It's pretty exciting to think about all the opportunities that our students now have with their devices.  Now, students in grades 2-12 all have their own Chromebook. More and more of our students are now taking their  devices home.  This practice is now more common in many school districts across the state.  Below is a visualization from GoGuardian that was taken today that  shows how our students are using their school issued Chromebooks.   Our students are searching, writing, completing assignments, taking part in formative assessments, and creating things that they may not be able to create without technology.   A big shoutout to all of our teachers, our tech department, media specialists, and administrators who are making this happen.
I also wanted to make you aware of the new and improved Instructional Technology Site! I've listened and gotten feedback and have tried to up my game on the site.  This site is mean to be a one stop shop for all instructional technology needs. Here you can find Google tutorials, GoGuardian Instructions,  free technology tools, information about hot spot check out, and information to share with students and staff about our 1:1 Program.  If it has to do with technology in the classroom this is where you can find it! This site is mean to be fluid and will be updated throughout the year.  To navigate to the site  go to www.elbert.k12.ga.us - hover over departments and click  on Instructional Technology.  Also you can click on THIS LINK and bookmark the site. Please let me know if you have questions!

Take Care,
Clint
