Collaborative Learning Environment
Last year the SchoolBoard approved for the high school to begin the process of providing high school students Chromebooks, for school and home use. The mission of the 1-to-1 (one Chromebook to one student) program in the Haverford School District is to create a collaborative learning environment for all learners. This environment will enable and support students and teachers to implement transformative uses of technology while enhancing student engagement with content and promoting the development of self- directed, responsible life-long learners.Prepare Our StudentsThe logo to the right refers to our vision for our students. One laptop will provide them with the tools to access valuable resources throughout the world. We live in a connected world. Our students need to be problem solvers and innovative thinkers in today’s ever-changing world. Our goal is to empower students with access to digital tools and resources so that they can personalize and direct their learning. Creating a technology-enriched learning environment allows students to pursue their unique academic interests and support learning inside and outside of the classroom - a continuum of learning - at all locations between school and home. We must prepare students for a world where they will have much more responsibility for creating and managing their own work. All of our students, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances, deserve the level playing field that access to technology can provide.
