(The remainder of this webpage is devoted to supporting FACULTY use of Chromebooks.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
All 13 Chromebook Carts for the pilot stage of the district's 1:1 computing initiative have now been deployed. Almost all sophomores, juniors, and seniors will gain experience using the Chromebooks for class assignments and activities since every dedicated English and Language Arts classroom in grades 10-12 received a cart.*
The following 10th-12th grade English and Language Arts teachers received carts of 35 Chromebooks for their students to use in class during the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years:
Additional carts with 20 Chromebooks were distributed to the following teachers in Special Education and Bruin Academy:
A special thanks to the following teachers for their after-school efforts in helping get the carts ready:
*Severe and Profound (Intellectually Disabled and Multihandicapped) special education classes, which already have dedicated iPads, did not receive Chromebook carts in this initial deployment.
