7th grade students received their new MacBook Air laptops last night at the 7th grade distribution meeting. Students and parents had conversations about making good choices online. Like the 8th grade families, they worked together to create a family laptop contract to define the family's expectations for how to use the laptop at home.
Today, all 7th grade classes are using the 7th Grade Technology website to help students make the transition from Windows to Mac and get organized for the year. Students are also joining their teacher's Google Classroom. Google Classroom is a new way for students and teachers to share resources and assignments. There is excitement in the air!
The expectations of ASFG and the 8th grade teachers were also discussed at the meeting. This year, teachers will be using a Google Form to track 8th grade behavior with regard to laptop use in class. Students in 8th grade are expected to be respectful, responsible and kind as they use their laptops in class. In other words, they are expected to be good digital citizens.
