Chromebook Clout @HopkinsSchool

With great power comes great responsibility. At Hopkins School, students and teachers are exploring their new technological superpowers while learning strategies to help them become outstanding digital citizens. What force has brought this new bounce to the building?

This year Hopkins School met a major instructional technology goal when the school doubled the number of Chromebooks. Each student now has access to the tool throughout the school day. Here are some graphical insights into how our students and staff are rising to the potentiality and challenges that accompany our new capabilities.

While the story of the Chromebooks continues to play out at Hopkins, one thing is clear. Students and staff have pledged to use our new powers for the good!
