What Are We Doing 1:1 After Three Weeks?

It's Friday!

We, here at Kearney High School, are just completing our third week of 1:1 with Chromebooks. I have been in some classrooms and have seen the awesome things happening for myself and I have also polled the staff on what they are doing.

Based on their answers, I categorized the usage and here is the list so far:

Chromebook Uses

  • Class Websites (Google Sites, School Fusion)
  • Learning Management Systems (Moodle, Schoology,  School Fusion)
  • Gmail (Large increase since 1:1)

  • Google Docs Projects
  • Discussion Boards

  • Theatre Project utilizing YouTube and Google Docs to summarize each chapter and how it relates to a given play.

Critical Thinking
  • Google Search (Having it “at the ready”)
  • Real time data analysis in science classes

  • Graphic Organizers (Google Drawing)
  • Guided Notes (Template Gallery/Make a Copy)
  • Shared Slide Decks

Instructional Input
  • Online Textbooks
  • Desmos graphing program
  • GeoGebra

Formative Assessment


  • Google Forms with Flubaroo script
  • Moodle
  • Infuse Learning/Socrative

This is a great start! We only asked our teachers to consider the Substitution level of the SAMR Model for technology integration and so many of them have cleared that hurdle by a mile! I can't wait to see where we go from here!

Have a happy day!
