|District 204 reviews pros, cons of Chromebook plan's 1st year|
|Posted by: Susan Einhorn|
|Come fall, high school students will be issued Chromebooks and pilot tests will start at the elementary schools. One grade level – from second to fifth grade – at each elementary school will participate.
Stan Gorbatkin, assistant superintendent of technology services, said administrators originally only included third through fifth grades in its pilot plans, but teachers pushed to include second grade.
One of advantages of every student having the same device is the aspect of equity, District 204 administrators said.
Gorbatkin said he spoke with a middle school student who said the Chromebook meant he and his family had the same opportunities as other students.
"We're lifting some kids up; we're lifting some families up. I'm proud of that," he said.
