One-to-One (1:1) Technology at NEXT High School
The purpose of the 1:1 Chromebook program at NEXT High School is to provide opportunities for collaborative learning in an engaging and challenging environment that will prepare our students for life beyond high school. All lessons involving technology will be designed around the technology's ability to engage students, enhance instruction, and extend learning beyond the typical classroom.
At NEXT High School, students will use the Schoology Learning Management System as well as the G Suite for Education platform. Pros may also use various web apps and online collaboration tools. Through these platforms, Peers will work together, complete assignments, make up work, communicate, and create projects of impact.
Device Protection Policy
Any significant or catastrophic damage will result in one of two courses of action:
(1) In the case of accidental damage resulting in the Chromebook no longer being functional, the Peer will receive an older used Chromebook for the remainder of the school year or until repairs can be made.
(2) In the case of intentional or careless damage resulting in the Chromebook becoming non-operational, or the loss of the Chromebook, the Peer will be charged the replacement cost of the Chromebook (up to $250).
The majority of Chromebook damages can easily be prevented if the device is properly stored in a case or sleeve and handled with care.
Cases and shells also provide students the opportunity to "personalize" their Chromebooks, making them easy to identify if misplaced at school.
