Metcalf students can pick up Chromebooks, schedule at orientation Aug. 23

Metcalf Middle School students will be able to pick up their Chromebooks at orientation on Aug. 23 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., as District 191 expands its 1-to-1 personal learning device program to include grades 6-8 as part of Vision One91.

Middle school students will be getting the same model of Chromebook that high school students received last school year. They are lightweight, inexpensive devices that provide students access to the internet, their Google accounts and other web-based applications. The model being purchased includes a touch-screen along with a keyboard so it also acts as a tablet.
