The seventh graders in David Nichol’s Social Studies class just got a nice upgrade from their 7-year old laptops.
Thanks to a recently-awarded Wellesley Education Foundation grant, 25 brand new Google Chromebooks are headed their way. The students will use the Chromebook computers for Internet-based research activities, writing and organizing their work as well as using relevant Google applications and other digital tools.
For more than 25 years, through generous donations from the community, WEF has funded grants to educators in the Wellesley Public Schools System in Massachusetts. In the past 10 years alone, WEF has awarded $1 million in grants and assistance to promote “deeper learning experiences (that) have the potential to impact a large number of students in innovative ways.”
