Brodhead High School Receives New Chromebooks
Brodhead High School was awarded a grant through the Wisconsin Technology Initiative (WTI), to buy two computer carts and a set of 28 Chromebooks. The High School received approximately $7,500 from this grant, which is funded by the TOSA Foundation. The grant was actually written last school year and was awarded over the summer.
The purpose of the grant was to provide more access to computers for the High School students and staff. This mobile cart can be used in any location throughout the school. Teachers can sign up for this cart rather than try to find time in one of the two computer labs. More and more technology is being used in the classroom and this provides one more avenue for teachers to increase student exposure.
A focus for the District staff has been on technology and the different uses available to them. The first two in-services of the school year have been concentrated on different programs available to teachers on the internet, especially the Google platform. Teachers have been exposed to Google as well as many other technology platforms that they are implementing into their classrooms. The District and especially Brodhead High School would like to thank the TOSA Foundation for this generous grant.
