Technology & Connectivity
● ALH recognizes that sufficient access to computing devices and high-speed internet are essential for educational equity; and that technology knowledge and skills are vital for full participation in 21st Century life, work, and citizenship. To ensure sufficient access to technology ALH is:
○ Surveying all parents/guardians and staff to identify the level of access to high speed broadband Internet.
○ Implementing a one to one Chromebook program in which every student will be issued a Chromebook for use at home and in school.
● ALH currently provides teachers with a laptop.
● ALH will evaluate staff job functions to determine technology needs. ALH will ensure staff have adequate access to technology.
● ALH will provide professional development for staff and teachers on designing effective remote/online learning experiences, best practices for instruction in remote/online settings, and digital fluency.
● ALH teachers and the student support team will partner with families to provide both support and flexibility to students participating remote/blended/online learning experiences.
● To the extent possible ALH will be paperless and not require students participating in online/remote learning environments to print assignments. ALH will utilize online platforms to post and upload educational materials and assignments.
- ALH has invested in 18 new 65” SMART Interactive Whiteboards to be placed in all full-size classrooms. In addition to the Interactive Boards a streaming program called View Path will be installed in all 18 rooms. This will allow for a more interactive hybrid learning environment for both in class students and remote students.
- All students in school and remote will be able to interact with one another via the streaming solution.
- All remote students will have the ability to view the board as if they were in the classroom, removing the barriers that would otherwise be if we use a traditional camera recording platform.
