Starting September 2022 we will adopt personal student devices policy
It’s time to keep the pace with changes in technology and in the digital world students are living in.
Technology its just a tool, and the point in education is to teach its uses for common activities like study, research, creating content, and so much more!
We will then adopt personal student devices policy in Middle School starting with the new School Year, in September 2023.
What kind of device for students
We need a device that is light, with battery lasting at least 3-4 hours and durable materials.
There are a lot of choices in the market and among all of them we considered the Chromebook laptops to be a good solution.
The Chromebook Technology
Chromebooks works great with Google Workspace for Education, a cloud software suite the School is already proficiently using since 2018.
Chromebooks are usually lighter, cheaper and with longer lasting battery compared to Windows’ laptops. They have some limitations, of course, but – anyway – they’re a great solution for a personal device to use in school.
As with any other technologies there are many models of Chromebooks, different in shape, quality, performance, components. We don’t want to bind our users to a specific manufacturer / model but, anyway, we need some minimal requirements to be sure the laptop can be used with profit for didactical purposes. Here’s the specifics:
- CPU Intel Celeron N5000 or above (check comparison website like this to discover more)
- RAM 8 GB
- MONITOR Full HD (1920×1080) resolution
- DIMENSION: 13″ or above
