Technology Information for H-B Staff

H-B Technology Info – September 2016 – This is the annual tech memo about changes and technology at H-B.

Help for New Staff

Personalized Learning Devices Handbook – This year all H-B Woodlawn teachers will be participating in the Personalized Device Initiative and will have an iPad and/or a MacBook Air depending on the grade level they teach.

Once fully implemented in the fall of 2017, the personalized device initiative will provide each student in grades 2 through 8 with an iPad and each student in grades 9-12 with a MacBook Air for their educational use at both home and at school throughout the school year and during the summer months. Students are being provided these tools for their individual use so that student work and other educational materials and resources can be stored for easy access by each student. These devices enrich the learning environment and offer teachers an additional resource with which to personalize instruction for students.

In a highly technological world, it is critical that students learn to be responsible, ethical users of technology. This hand- book outlines many of these responsibilities. It provides information and resources for teachers, students and families so that we may work in partnership to guide students’ responsible use of technology as they grow into informed, ethical users.
