1:1 Digital Device Program
Covington Community School Corporation is committed to providing all students a balanced and challenging education that includes the use of digital devices. The digital devices used and supported at CCSC are Google Chromebooks.
Chromebooks: Basic Information
- (Wikipedia: Chromebook
A good definition of a Chromebook is a device that is part laptop, part cellphone. A Chromebook looks just like a laptop, but runs just like a cellphone. Chromebooks are made by many computer manufacturers so there are a variety of different shapes and sizes. Besides the look of a Chromebook, all of them run the exact same software.
Chromebooks are designed to be used with a wireless Internet connection, but can be used without. A Chromebook is considered "offline" when not connected to the Internet. Covington Schools fully supports certain "offline" modes for students that do not have sufficient Internet access at home. If an "offline" mode is not available, other supportive accommodations will be made.
Chromebooks only install and run apps acquired from the "Web Store". Students are restricted from installing apps, but may request to have an app unblocked if the app is educationally based.
