Student working with a Chromebook.

Fourth grade students in Mrs. Boatright’s language arts classroom are piloting the use of Chromebooks at Highland Elementary.  Pictured to the right is a student is shown publishing his personal narrative using Google Docs.  This week students were able to take their spelling tests, vocabulary tests, and story comprehension tests online.

Hamilton City Schools recently purchased some 2000+ Chromebooks for the classroom. Through the months of September and October these Chromebooks will gradually be placed in the classroom. The district’s technology team is refining procedures for the use and care of the Chromebooks.

Chromebooks are lightweight, fast, inexpensive devices that use Google Apps for their programs.
