LESD #27 has committed to providing a Chromebook for each teacher and 6th grade student at the start of the 2016-2017 school year. The District 27 Technology Integration Team will be training and developing lessons that prepare district teachers for this transition in learning.
A technology committee met to study LESD #27 technology needs in November 2015. It was decided at the first meeting that the Committee would begin exploring the possibility of expanding 1:1 computing to all schools throughout the district.
Careful planning, site visits, research, and committee work led to a plan for purchasing Chromebooks for LESD #27 students and staff and the development of the District 27 Technology Integration Team.

Having Chromebooks in the classroom is like having "Differentiation in a box!"

The way that I am approaching this new technology is in the position of a young student, ready and willing to learn. I fully understand that this technology will be able to enrich my students learning and prepare me and my students for the future.

When teachers use technology, it creates a situation where deeper learning must take place. More thinking, editing and revising to get it right.

The majority of our students are also digital learners. It is one more modality that we need to provide when we instruct; much like we always teach with visual, auditory and kinesthetic options. Students will be able to easier access information and produce lessons that demostrate their mastery of a topic. Start with one small step!

The District #27 Technology Integration Team was established in May 2016. Teachers on this team will meet for a week of training in June.
The primary focus of this group will be to plan training and prepare materials that will be shared with all District #27 staff during the 2016-2017 school year in order to prepare staff for the transformation in instruction, use of Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education (GAFE).
