We've started the year off with a bang! all of our students are eager to learn and grow! With smiles on their faces, they received their new account passwords and for some, new devices too.
You see, Chromebooks are a tool for learning here at DuJardin School and in District 13. We liken the device to a pencil. It is not the sole way to learn, but a tool that unlocks many new opportunities to enhance knowledge.
Because technology is such an important piece of instruction, the beginning of the year is the perfect time to review digital citizenship with our students. During our building handbook talks, we review the following points with students:
Teachers embed these digital citizenship pieces in throughout the entire year. However, If we can hammer these points home now, our students will hopefully be set up for future success-- always our goal :)
