Ravenscroft’s Google Chromebook Pilot Program Set to Start

Just over 225 Chromebooks from Google arrived at Ravenscroft School in Raleigh, North Carolina over the holidays in preparation for its Chromebook Pilot Program.

The college preparatory school is doing a feasibility study on Google Apps for Education with its Grade 7 and Grade 10 classes beginning in February.

The Class of 2017 and Class of 2014 are looking forward to claiming their Chromebooks and getting a tech tutorial on Tuesday, January 31st to get the project underway.

Ravenscroft staff will track progress through surveys and conduct regular meetings with user groups, including parents and guardians, to record feedback.

School officials say: “If Ravenscroft determines that the pilot program is a success and, pending the approval of a successful funding model, the school will look to provide students in grades 7 through 12 with units in the near future.”
