One2One Digital Learning Program
Philosophy
The District focuses on helping all students learn and grow. The One2One
digital learning program empowers teachers and students to engage in
teaching and learning through the district’s curriculum in more impactful ways
then with limited technology. The One2One digital learning program allows
our students and teachers access to a variety of resources at all achievement
levels, the ability to participate in differentiated learning activities based upon
the skills and concepts that they need to learn, and develop unique learning
products that demonstrate their understanding of the curriculum standards
and learning objectives.
The One2One digital learning program allows for access, authenticity, equity,
and choice; while also increasing the collaboration, communication, creativity
and critical thinking of our students. The advantage of the One2One digital
learning program exists because each student will have his/her own device
and can learn anytime and anywhere. The focus is not solely on technology.
The main focus is about a paradigm shift in how instruction is delivered and
how that instruction sparks creativity and innovation in students providing a
new sense of engagement and ownership in their own learning.
In addition, One2One learning environments differ from traditional
environments in most school settings because they offer all students and
teachers continuous access to a wide range of software, electronic
documents, the Internet and other digital tools for teaching and learning. The
key component is the access of information, engaging students and
encouraging them to take responsibility for their own learning.
Implementation of the 1:1 Digital Learning Program
The One2One Digital Learning device is a learning tool that will be integrated
with the District’s curriculum. In order to receive the device, the student and
parents/guardian must sign off on the One2One Digital Learning Program
Student Use Agreement. All students must abide by the District’s Acceptable
Use Policy and Social Media Guidelines. Students are expected to bring the
device to school each day and keep the device charged and in good working
order. See the Student Use Agreement for more details.
Starting in the 2016 - 2017 school year, all current fifth and sixth grade
students (Class of 2023 and 2024) will be supplied with a device. Each
subsequent 5th grade class will receive a device at the beginning of the 5th
grade year. Then when entering the 9th grade students will be requested to
trade in their current device for an updated model. Any student withdrawing or
graduating from the District is required to turn in their device or additional
fees will be placed on the student’s account.

integration of technology in the classroom through the One2One Digital
Learning Program, additionally the creating of digital learning courses at the
high school level. Digital learning at this level is a part of the digital learning
program in which the District will create additional opportunities for students
to be involved in coursework digitally. This plan will increase the use of a
learning management platform during the regular school day, promote the
use of digital learning strategies such as flipped learning, and create digital
academic opportunities for students through asynchronous online and hybrid
course offerings.

Why Chromebooks for Grades 5-12?
The District in 2015 transitioned all email systems, file storage, calendar
services, video conferencing services, classroom learning management
systems to Google Apps for Education. With this transition more of more of
the District’s educators are using Google Apps for Education products in their
classrooms, ranging from Google Classroom to collaborative Google Docs.
The past practice of using shared iPads is difficult to properly use Google
Apps for Education as the iPads are clunky in using multiple apps for Google.
Education Benefit - In choosing the Chromebook the District has the ability to
put a device in the hand of every student in the District. Technology can have
positive impacts on the educational process, but only if the technology is
available when needed by the teacher or the student. The current model of
sharing iPad carts limits the time students can use technology. Additionally
the Chromebook 1:1 model will allow students to have devices 24/7. The
hope is this model will allow learning to become a never-ending process, in
which students can learn anywhere, anytime.
Chromebooks can work with or without an Internet connect - Current surveys
show that 92% of the District’s students have access to the Internet at home,
but 8% do not. Through the PickConnect program we are working to increase
opportunities for students to access the Internet, through partnership with
local business. The Chromebooks do have a small hard drive built into the
system and can even be used at home without a Internet connection and be
properly synced in seconds once the student enters the school.
Apps can be pushed out in seconds - The current practice of utilizing iPads
causes some issues for loading apps. This process involves one person in
the building (the Building Technology Advisor) syncing the carts to update/
install apps and operating systems. This process through an iPad can be
time consuming. By utilizing the Google Apps Management Console, the
technology department can push out apps wirelessly to specific groups of
students or to all of the students in the District within minutes. Also teachers
have the ability to create contact groups and push out apps just for their
students.
______________________________________________________________
Pickerington Schools Technology Plan • 62
There are little to no security/virus issues - As with all of the Chromebooks
most things are stored in the cloud. That means there is nothing to “steal”
from the computer and nothing for a virus to attach itself.
They turn on in eight seconds or less - The quick start up process saves
precious instructional time.
Chromebooks have a battery life of eight to ten hours - Current
Chromebooks will last the entire school day, making re-charging during the
day not needed.
Why the Dell Chromebook 11?
The Technology Committee has selected the Dell Chromebook 11 as the
Chromebook Model to begin the 1:1 digital learning program with grades 5-8.
The Dell Chromebook 11 merges the benefits of a chromebook and
touchscreen device, giving teachers and students more resources to use to
improve teaching and learning.
Product Overview: The Dell Chromebook 11 runs the Chrome operating
system, has 4 GB of RAM, a 32 GB solid state
hard drive, an 11.6 inch touchscreen, 802.11
ac WIFI connection and bluetooth
capabilities. Superior durability and
design:
• School tough: The Dell Chromebook
11 is MIL-STD (U.S. Military Standard)
tested for durability, pressure,
temperature, humidity, shock and
vibration so it can handle student
life.
• Built for the backpack: The rubberized LCD and base trim absorbs shock
for superior drop protection.
______________________________________________________________
Pickerington Schools Technology Plan • 63
• Surface strength: The scratch-resistant touch screen is made of Corning®
Gorilla® Glass NBT™ — built to handle every tap, stroke and swipe.
• Spill protection: Students can learn without fear. A fully sealed keyboard
and touch pad provide the industry’s best spill protection for a student
laptop.
• Lightweight design: At under three pounds with a compact 11.6" display, it’s
easy to pop it in a backpack and head from class to class.
Why iPad Minis/Airs for Grades Pre-K - 4?
The device that used needs to be selected due to the academic needs and
instructional purpose in the classroom. The Elementary One2One model will
be where each classroom teacher has a cart of iPad Minis available in their
classroom. The iPads will stay in the classroom. There will be a limited
number of iPads available for check out through the school’s media center for
students that need to take a device home.
Elementary staff members have given the recommendation that we continue
with the iPad for numerous reason:
• The iPad works well with current digital tools
that are already in place with the elementary
curriculum.
• The apps that are available for the iPad are
more elementary student friendly then the
apps available in the Google Play store.
• Elementary students perform better with
the touchscreen functionality.
• iPad Minis are lighter and easier for
younger students to handle.
• Improved battery life will last the entire
school day.
• Students are comfortable with the device and
the iPad Mini is extremely easy to use.
• iPad Minis have all of the creative tools (video, audio)
that are needed to integrate with the elementary curriculum.
• More simulations, videos and interactive media for elementary students
then the Chromebooks.

Pickerington Schools Technology Plan • 64
Digital Citizenship Education
The District in accordance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
that requires all school districts to educate minors on appropriate online
behavior we will be adopting the learning.com/EasyTech digital citizenship
online safety curriculum for all students. This program cover topics on
appropriate online behavior, interacting with others on the web, keeping
personal information safe and cyberbullying awareness/response. This
curriculum will be a blended learning format with some of the curriculum
taught through online lessons and other lessons taught through discussions
and activities. School counselors, school media specialists/aides and
technology specialists will be responsible for this curriculum.
Additionally in accordance to the Jessica Hogan Law (HB116 from 2012) the
District will be training training staff on cyber-bullying policies and strategies.
The District will make information available to parents via our District website.
The digital citizenship curriculum will also include material for students about
cyberbullying.
Device Insurance and Student/Parent Acceptance Form
All students in the One2One Digital Learning Program will be assessed a $35
device warranty fee each year. This warranty fee will be used to fix two
accidental occurrences with the Chromebook, including but not limited to:
broken screen, broken keyboard, device not working properly OR one
complete replacement of the device. This warranty fee does not cover
intentional damage (running over it with the car, punching or throwing the
device, etc) to the device. If a device is lost a fee to replace the device (based
on current market price and pro-rated for the number of years of the device)
will be placed on the student fees.While the device is being repaired the
student will be given a loaner device to use so instruction is not stopped.
Those students/families that are identified as socio-economic will have this
fee waived. The school district will fix one accidental occurrence per calendar
year. Any damage to the device after the one forgiveness, with be assessed
back to the parent/student.
If a student (or parent/guardian) opts out of the warranty fee, then all
damages to the device must be paid in full by the parent/guardian before the
device will be returned to the student.
