Chromebooks: Devices to support learning for our students’ futures

School District 21’s Mission is “Preparing All Students for Success,” and the District’s Vision goes on to state that, “The purpose of District 21 schools is to provide a learning environment for all students to become life-long learners and productive citizens.” To that end, one of the main goals of the Information Services Department was to provide students with devices that serve as tools to better allow students and teachers to accomplish this Mission and Vision. This continues to support our Areas of Focus today.

In today’s world, as a result of the Internet, the amount of information available to students and teachers grows exponentially. Additionally, identifying the most accurate information requires that students can access the Internet and that students develop the skills to evaluate the information and its source(s). From there, to be successful as citizens and highly skilled Information Age workers, students must also be able to synthesize information that they have found from a variety of sources and use this information to create novel solutions to problems.

It is critical in this information age to have access to the Internet rather than relying on static printed books that are often out-of-date. Additionally, as information comes from a variety of sources, it is critical that students are able to access all of those varied sources as they engage in learning activities. Equally importantly, students need to be able to share their learning and the solutions to the problems that they have solved with others. Being able to connect with others and apply their learning to solve real problems results in much deeper levels of motivation for students, and the result is that students will learn more and retain it longer.
