Integrating 1:1 Chromebooks in the K-3 Classroom
by Dr. Rachel Jones, principal, Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools

Since 2013, the integration of 1:1 Chromebooks in one primary building has transformed instruction. All teachers have leveraged this technology, increasing student opportunities to create, innovate, and collaborate. The youngest learners have exceeded expectations with their seemingly natural independence and fearless problem-solving as they embrace technology in learning. Beyond the engaged instructional practices, teachers develop creative assessment tools to monitor student progress.
