Tech Talk

Farmington Middle School is 1:1 with Chromebooks. These devices are an extension of the classroom. As teachers are trained to use these devices to increase student engagement and students achievement, it is important that students bring their Chromebooks to school each day and that they are fully charged. Please develop a plan with your student each night to power down and charge their device so they are prepared and do not miss out on any educational opportunities at school.

Digital Literacy and Responsibility are key components that each child should understand. Here is a resource that teaches digital citizenship, your child's digital footprint and other important features of being safe on-line.

As always do not be afraid to monitor and check your students on-line presence and activity.

Character Council - Pursuing the Pillars of Integrity
