Inverness High School has had 40 Chromebooks since January 2016 as a start to the Digital Hub Makerspace being developed in the school. In a very short time many teachers, even some technophobes, have started using the Chromebooks frequently with classes without any persuasion. We currently only have one whole-school computer suite of 20 machines to share between all classes.
There has been a lot of staff interest in getting quick starter CPD to use Chromebooks, Google Apps and work more electronically with pupils but all have experimented to find different ways of enhancing learning and teaching. We have individual pupils in classes and seniors in study periods borrowing Chromebooks to complete work.
All of the info below was within the first month of having the devices and growth with staff/more classes and pupils has continued to increase.
The Digital Learning Team will add news or examples of good practice on here so keep checking back for up to date info.
