During the school year 2017-2018, Career Academy braved a new adventure in preparing students for their futures and rolled out a 1:1 laptop program for our students. Each student received a new touchscreen Lenovo N23 laptop. The laptops flip all of the way open to serve as a tablet as well. The Lenovo laptops and the access they provide to each of our student to the internet allow us to not only integrate more technology into student’s learning experiences, but also provide additional opportunities for students to collaborate, communicate, create, and apply critical thinking skills in their learning.
We have continued the program with full steam into 2018-2019 and have seen our teachers bring our students to new places and allow them to learn in amazing ways. We utilize Canvas as a learning platform and are amazed to see the ways that teachers innovate on a daily basis. Our students create projects and have chances every day to take their curriculum to places that we have never seen.
As we transition to 2019-2020, we will offer training camps over the summer for students to learn to use their laptops and to learn troubleshooting skills. All of our forms will be online, and students will be issued laptops in advance of school beginning. Should you have any questions, please email Dr. Vicky Creasy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
