CHROMEBOOK CONNECT @ KEN CARYL MIDDLE SCHOOL

All 7th and 8th grade KCMS students will be required to buy a district Chromebook at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. Families will be charged $219 in their student’s 2018-2019 fees and students will receive their Chromebook in August 2018. Students will use this device in Jeffco schools over the next 3-5 years.

Ken Caryl Middle School aims to create an innovative learning environment that prepares students for their future in a rapidly changing world, one which requires new skills to equip students for college, career, and citizenship opportunities. Through a 1:1 initiative (one device to one student), technology transforms learning experiences to prepare our students for the demands of tomorrow.

STUDENT ENGAGEMENT A device on its own does not necessarily motivate or engage students, but it can provide access to tools, assignments, and information that will.
COLLABORATION Digital tools can broaden perspective and provide deeper learning through local and global collaboration.
ACCESS TO THE WORLD’S INFORMATION Students use modern tools and methods to access all of the world’s information which changes exponentially every minute.
REAL-TIME COMMUNICATION AND FEEDBACK Digital tools provide opportunities for teachers and peers to provide feedback in a variety of ways. Communication between students and teachers increases as this can now happen outside of the school walls and school day.
PERSONALIZED LEARNING Utilizing technology helps meet the demands of a school that has grown more diverse with a wide range of needs, interests, and abilities in their students.
CREATIVE DEMONSTRATIONS OF LEARNING Access to a variety of digital tools provides students the opportunity to demonstrate their learning through many platforms such as video, audio, drawing, screencasting, and coding.
