We had a successful deployment today. We started off the morning by calling the entire 7th-grade together. Mr. Hamrick explained the pilot to the students. We went over just a few ground rules, the most important of which was that under no circumstances should a Chromebook be removed from its protective case. I called out the names of the students who would participate in this phase of the pilot. The others went back to class with their teachers, and we began! The spreadsheet entry and entry into 1-to1 went off without a hitch. We were finished before second period. I had a video camera all set up and ready to go, but of course, I forgot to start recording before we were underway! Here are a few pictures:
The new HP 11A G6 is on the left. The old HP 14 G4 is on the right.
This photo shows the difference in cases.
This photo just shows what was collected from the students.
This is a first draft of the feedback form that will be going out to students mid-way through the pilot.
