Technology is exploding in our elementary schools!All students in grades 3 - 5 have access to a personal Chromebook. Currently, our 5th graders bring their devices home, while our 3rd & 4th grade Chromebooks remain in the classroom at night. Students are accessing the digital elements of the textbooks, interacting with their teachers on Google Classroom and creating rich, multi-media projects. Teachers are integrating Digital Citizenship within their teaching to ensure that students start successfully building their digital footprint. Posters such as the one below will help guide those discussions.
Since QACPS is a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) county, all students are issued an email address with a unique Google address: @student.qacps.org. Their email address only works within the QACPS system. Students can only email someone who has a @qacps.org or @student.qacps.org email address, so you will not be able to email your children at school. This restriction is to help ensure your child's online safety.Below are some helpful resources concerning our 1-to-1 initiative:
