To start the 2016-2017 school year, Berlin Public Schools finished its District-wide, one-to-one Chromebook initiative. Every student from Kindergarten to twelfth grade was provided with their own Chromebook. Please see our one-to-one philosophy below for more information.
A one-to-one initiative is a partnership with students, parents, teachers, and the community to challenge and engage each child by providing quality educational programs and support services in order to reach his/her highest potential. The one-to-one initiative empowers teachers and students to engage in learning the district’s curriculum through traditional and digital materials. One-to-one devices allow our students and teachers access to a variety of resources at all achievement levels, participate in differentiated learning activities, and develop unique learning products that demonstrate their understanding of the curriculum objectives. Our vision is that students will develop the skills they need to succeed in a mediacentric, global society.
Our teachers will be groundbreaking pioneers and visionary leaders in their schools and communities. Pioneering leaders model good practices in their ability to use today's tools and technologies productively, understand how to access, evaluate, and use information effectively, and commit to be active collaborators in our global society.
