TMS eighth grade students receive Chromebooks

TECUMSEH — The Lenawee Intermediate School District (LISD) has provided free Chromebooks to Tecumseh Public Schools (TPS) eighth grade students. The Chromebook is for students to use in class and at home to assist in learning and collaborating with other students. Three years into the project, with over 700 Chromebooks given out, the district’s eighth, ninth, and tenth graders are now supplied with a tool to help them grow as students. Each Chromebook is gifted to the students, dependent on the tool being well taken care of upon their graduation.“The program has been a success for the most part, and has come with some good learning opportunities for the students and staff,” said Eddy Foley, TPS Director of Technology. We’ve learned a lot from our successes and failures, but our staff has embraced the use of the Chromebooks and really tailored their lessons to the technology.” For students who do not have a Chromebook, which can happen for numerous reasons, the district does provide netbooks for use in the classroom so that the student does not miss out on the opportunities provided to their peers.The goal of the program is to provide Chromebooks for all students eighth through 12th grade, but with additional funds TPS would look at the possibility of expanding to other grade levels.
