1:1 Computing Timeline

posted Feb 3, 2017, 10:03 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Feb 3, 2017, 10:04 AM ]


In August 2016 district voters approved a bond issue to fund a multi-year plan to implement 1:1 computing for secondary school students. This will eventually provide a Chromebook to each middle school and high school student for use both at school and at home.

In the 2016-2017 pilot year, 13 carts with 20 to 35 Chromebooks have been provided to the students in all 10th, 11th, and 12th Grade English classrooms. The students and teachers are using G Suite for Education along with the Canvas Learning Management System in their lessons.

In 2017-2018 all freshmen will receive a Chromebook for use at school and home. The district is prepared to deal with the accidental damage that may occur. Parents will be able to purchase an insurance plan to help cover Chromebook repairs, and there will be an on-site Chromebook repair and support program at the high school, manned by trained students and an instructor.

The Chromebooks program will expand to grades 9-12 in 2018-2019, and to grades 6-12 in 2019-2020. While take-home Chromebooks will be provided to secondary school students, elementary students will be better served with classroom-based tablets in varying ratios.

Technology advances quickly, so this timeline and plan structure is subject to change in order to maximize instructional effectiveness and efficiency.

Bruins Chromebook User Guide Available

Granger Meador has created a customized user guide for the Dell Chromebooks now in use at Bartlesville High School:
The online version of the guide can be continually updated as needed.

BHS Chromebook deployment in 2016

In the fall of 2016 each of the English classrooms in grades 10-12 received a cart of 20-35 Chromebooks for student use. The teachers in those rooms, along with the site's teacher technology assistants, also received one of the Chromebooks for their use.


All teachers in grades 9-12 will receive a Chromebook in 2017

By June 2017 all BHS teachers and administrators will receive a Chromebook. This will help them prepare for 2017-18 when all freshman students will be checked out a Chromebook and for 2018-19 when all 9-12 grade students will be checked out a Chromebook.

Complete Canvas training to get a Chromebook

On the January 16 inservice day, all BHS teachers of freshman classes will attend an 80-minute training with Mr. Meador and English teacher Jen Ward on the Canvas Learning Management System.  Other BHS teachers can sign up for a later 80-minute session of that same training. 

Afterward, the district will publish a Kung Fu Canvas course. Once teachers in grades 9-12 earn their first belt in that course, they will receive their Chromebook. Teachers who go on to earn additional belts in Kung Fu Canvas can earn a carrying case, mouse, and other Chromebook accessories.
