Ritenour High School's 1:1 technology initiative reinforces the 21st century skills students need in order to be successful in college and careers.As part of this initiative, every RHS student receives a Chromebook at the start of the school year to use both in school and at home throughout the year. Chromebooks were distributed in July during a Parent-Student orientation session. Download the Parent/Student Chromebook Handbook.
This initiative is not centered on one device, but rather the transformational teaching and learning opportunities for our students that will help them reach higher levels of success. This kind of 21st century learning focuses on increased student engagement and higher-level skills to problem solve, multitask, think creatively, collaborate effectively and communicate globally.
Some paper and pencil tasks already have been replaced with technological interactions in Ritenour classrooms preK-12. Chromebooks have replaced some traditional textbook and notebook tasks. Through the use of technology, students are able to access a multitude of online resources that were previously unavailable using traditional methods. Materials are available 24/7, which encourages work to be done outside of the traditional school day.
