Westlake’s St. Paul Lutheran School is upgrading their technology by offering a new initiative to some of their students this February. Chromebooks will be given to each fifth- and sixth-grade student to be used through the eighth grade. Upon graduation, the laptops will be theirs to keep.
Each year going forward, Chromebooks will be issued to each student upon entering the fifth grade. The Chromebooks will be used to access the latest education curriculum, applications and textbooks. Teachers and students can collaborate on homework and learning after the last bell.
These lightweight mobile units are very user friendly. All the students need to do is hit the power button, sign in and be productive in seconds. Long battery life means Chromebooks last an entire school day. In addition to the Chromebooks, St. Paul has installed a lightning fast fiber internet connection. This connection will allow students and teachers instant access to content.
