Do you want help introducing a tech tool to your students?
Aidan, Kris & myself are more than happy to help introduce tech (remote, or IRL) to your class. We can also spend time, or an entire Digital Essentials class period helping your students, or supplementing an existing project in your curriculum!
If it makes sense for one of us to come in more than other (ex: Do you want Kris' database, or Sora expertise? Aidan's website building skills?) We can come into your class even if we don't regularly teach Digital Essentials in that grade.
Just let us know as a team in advance, & we will work out the logistics.
We are also as excited as you are to help in a more significant way with interdisciplinary projects. Let's collaborate!
All students will be familiar with and adhere to the Middle School Student School-Issued Device Agreement.
iPads and Chromebooks may only be used for specific class activities and assignments as specified by a teacher. In class, students may only access their iPad/Chromebook with the teacher’s permission. If device use is not requested by the teacher, devices remain closed and put away.
When at school, devices are not used outside of class, while walking in the hallway, waiting for the bus, or on the bus. School breaks and lunch are device-free times.
iPads and Chromebooks should be fully charged at the beginning of the school day.
If a student encounters a tech issue or problem with a school-issued device, it is the students’ responsibility to tell their advisor during homeroom.
Students may not use other personal ios devices (smartphones, laptops, or cell phones) during school unless instructed otherwise or if specific arrangements have been made with school administration.
Cell phones and smartwatches are collected each morning and returned to students at the end of the day.
Students who need to reach their families while in the school building may call from the middle school office.
Families who need to reach their child(ren) during the school day should call the school or email Ms. Neuberger firstname.lastname@example.org who will ensure that message is relayed to the student.
Students are responsible for checking their Berkeley Carroll email and Google Classroom regularly; teachers follow consistent Google Classroom posting protocols to support students’ use of Google Classroom.
