Chromebook PROGRAMME - Year 07 Intake september 2018
The Duchess’s Community High is a forward looking school.
We are ambitious for all of our students to be successful.
The Duchess's Chromebook Programme
Following consultation with parents, teachers and students we are pleased now be moving forward with our Chromebook Programme.
Having access to the latest technology when and where they need it gives students the very best chance of success in and beyond the classroom.
Chromebooks help pupils organise, communicate, learn and study both at school and when at home – whilst also being very cost effective. Individual access to technology is not something that should happen in a few rooms in a school, it should be for everyone, everywhere and at any time. Young people are used to having access to the Internet at all times, in all places – school should not be the exception. We want our pupils to have access to the greatest source of information and make the educational experience as varied, dynamic and stimulating as possible.
The Equipment on Offer
We have selected two Chromebooks which are best suited to enhance the learning experience of our students at Duchess’s. These Chromebooks are specifically designed for student use with a ruggedised outer casing and enhanced specification to ensure that they withstand all functional requirements.
Each device is also supplied with a 3 Year extended warranty and 3 Year insurance for accidental damage and theft with £0 excess giving complete peace of mind.
Chromebooks are extremely easy to use and facilitate both independent study and online collaboration whilst also offering high levels of security and eSafety. Through the use of Google Apps for Education & Office 365 we can further improve student engagement, and open the door to learning. The Chromebooks with the Management Console ensure that all students are able to access all of the same resources and applications, wherever they are in the world and enable teachers to deliver the curriculum in the most exciting and engaging way.
