Student Chromebooks

Student Chromebooks
At St. Barnabas, our education goes beyond memorization of facts and figures.  We also focus on teaching skills.  This ensures our students can be successful both in and out of the classroom today and in the future.
 
 Computers are a powerful learning tool. It is important that students understand how to harness the power of technology to find answers, organize information, and collaboratively share ideas.  All students from 3rd grade through 8th grade are issued their own dedicated Chromebooks to support this goal.  Students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade have access to a shared Chromebook cart.  In this way, all of our students are able to learn how to leverage technology as a tool for success.

Chromebook Applications

Chromebooks have countless classroom applications.  All St. Barnabas teachers have their own assigned Chromebooks so they too understand the technology and can bring fresh ideas on how to leverage them into their curriculum.  While there is no limit on ideas, here are a few applications in the classroom.
  •  Google Docs for Education
    • Word Processing (story telling, writing, electronic note taking)
    • Document Sharing (collaborative team work)
    • Spreadsheets (analyzing data, creating charts)
    • Presentations (public speaking, organizing information)
  • Google Forms (quizes, surveys)
  • Google Maps (social studies, history)
  • Google Sites (student ePortfolios, presentation of 
  • Internet Search (how to safely seek and find information)
  • Videos (science experiments, cultural awareness)
...plus so much more!

Insurance

Students who are issued their own dedicated Chromebook are responsible for them.  If they are damaged, they must pay the replacement costs.  We encourage families to purchase insurance for the Chromebooks.  Worth Avenue offers a competitive group discount for the school:
 
  • The insurance offering for the 2017-2018 school year closed on September 8, 2017.   
 
Students in Kindergarten to 2nd grade who only have access to the shared Chromebook cart do not need to purchase insurance.
