When introduced in a classroom setting, the Google Chromebook can have a tremendous impact on creativity, collaboration and exploration. A flexible and cost-effective device, the Chromebook can be used across curriculum and across grade levels, providing students with a solid foundation of the 21st Century Skills needed to propel them into higher education and beyond.
The Northborough Education Foundation has undertaken a 15-month campaign to help the Northborough School District put more devices into our schools to allow for greater access by all students—and ensuring that Northborough meets the Technology Literacy standards set by the state of Massachusetts. It is our goal to fund the purchase of at least 200 new Chromebooks, by the end of the 2016-17 school year.
The Northborough Education Foundation (NEF) is a volunteer-run organization that provides teachers and administrators in the town of Northborough with the resources necessary to improve curriculum, programs and services beyond the level supported by the annual school budget. Through a variety of fundraising initiatives, NEF helps finance the costs of extraordinary curriculum and staff development projects, student services and activities, special programs, equipment purchases and other efforts in order to foster creativity and nurture and develop a bright and enthusiastic generation of learners.
