One-to One Devices

One to One Devices

By Juniors Abbie Kull and Izzy VanderBleek

This coming 2014-2015 school year MHS students will be given Google Chrome Books as part of the one to one initiative. Each student will be issued their own Google Chrome Book, which will be able to be brought home to continue homework, and used to access the internet while at school. Hopefully having the one to one devices will drive students to explore different outlets for learning while excelling at their academics.
