     Tech
     

    The mission of the 1:1 program in the Franklin Township Public Schools District is to provide equitable access to digital educational resources for all learners. This transition will allow students and teachers to engage in transformative uses of technology while enhancing student collaboration, communication, and creativity. 21st Century learners have transitioned from consumers of information to creative producers and owners of knowledge.

    In addition, this program will prepare our students for a globally interconnected and evolving world that experiences rapidly changing technological advancements.


    Why 1:1 Chromebook Program?


    The focus of the Chromebook 1:1 Program is to empower students to become fully active participants in the learning process. Through the Chromebook 1:1 Program initiative, students will acquire technological and critical thinking skills and will develop a sense of personal and social responsibility that will enable them to be successful in the world for which we are preparing them.  Chromebooks will transform teaching practices and encourage students to engage in problem‐based learning and help them to realize that teaching and learning can occur anytime, anyplace.  

    The Chromebook 1:1 Program facilitates:  

    • Access to digital educational resources   

    • Availability to engage in 24/7 Learning  

    • Individualized learning     

    • Critical thinking and problem solving   

    • Communication and collaboration

    • Creativity and innovation    

    • Technology literacy skills   

    • College and career readiness


    Why Chromebooks?

     

    Chromebooks for education give students, teachers, and administrators a simple solution for fast, intuitive, and easy‐to‐manage computing. Chromebooks provide access to the web’s educational and collaborative resources, as well as offer centralized management and low total cost of ownership. Using Chromebooks, teachers spend more time teaching and less time managing classroom technology, and schools can deploy more computers into the hands of their students and teachers.

    We, as a district, are proud and excited of the FTPS 1:1 Chromebook initiative and its impact on student learning. We believe the opportunity for each FMS student to have their own device will result in an overall enhanced educational experience, better student organizational skills, personalized learning and expansion of learning and sharing beyond the walls of FHS, FMS@HSC and FMS@SGS campuses.

    We look forward to continuing to harness the potential that this technology can provide to our students and our instructional program.
