Hardin ISD Jr. High students returned from Spring Break excited and ready to learn with new technology at their fingertips. After years of research and planning, Chromebooks were provided for each student for daily use in the classroom. Home use is also recommended to allow students to further expand their learning outside of the school setting. Chromebooks are mobile devices designed specifically for web use and are ideal for education. The mission of the 1:1 program is to create a collaborative learning environment for all learners. This environment will enable and support students and teachers to implement technology into daily learning, enhance engagement, and promote self-directed lifelong learning.
Students will transition from consumers of information to creative producers and owners of knowledge. In this world of opportunities, the Hardin ISD Board, Administration, and Staff are excited to be able to better prepare our students for their ever-changing futures. Thank you to our Board, Superintendent, Administration, community and parents for their continued dedication to not only support but enhance education for our students. A huge thank you to the teachers who are embracing different methods of teaching in this new world of education.
