Sixth-Eighth grade students are required to have a chrome book or similar laptop styled device with a keyboard and working camera. Chrome books are preferred since they are low cost yet durable and meant to be handled by students. In addition, chrome books are web-based devices which utilize google based applications. All of my class work, homework and tests are google based which I have complete control over as a teacher. Other devices such as MacBooks, iPads, tablets, and phones are capable of downloading applications that I wouldn’t be able to control within my classroom. You can purchase a chrome book from Costco, Best Buy, Target, Amazon and Walmart.
