Chromebooks will enhance learning in classrooms

Thirty chrome books and a charging station have found their new home at Keota Community High School.

The chrome books were purchased from Infrastructure Technology Solutions for the amount of $8,120, which included the charging station. Funding from the SAVE account was utilized for the purchase of the machines.

High school Principal and Superintendent Jim Henrich says, “ The addition of the chrome books will allow our high school students more access to technology. It is a tool to access web based applications and will be used in the classrooms to enhance the learning experience.

One teacher, Mr. Jacobsen, is excited to have the opportunity to use the chrome books in his curriculum.

“Having technology in the classroom better prepares our students for wherever their lives take them beyond the walls of Keota High. Recent studies indicate that over half of the jobs our students will have after graduation don't even exist yet. So having technology integrated as much as possible in classrooms is a vital and essential tool to preparing students for life in the 21st century,” Mr. Jacobsen said.
