ALL STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO CHROMEBOOKS

Students at Bedford Public Schools all have access to Chromebooks. The youngest students each have access to devices that are kept in their classrooms. Students in Grades 2-12 have devices issued to them that they take home each evening. Previously, the Chromebooks in Grades 2-3 had been used in classrooms only. 

With a device available to each student, if the district, or individual school building, needs to switch back to virtual learning at any point, everyone has access to the online resources needed to make that pivot to at-home learning no matter what grade the student is in. 

BPS uses the following schedule when assigning devices to students:

When 8th Grade and 12th Grade Chromebooks are turned in, they are repurposed for use by students in 2nd and 3rd Grade. The next year, these Chromebooks are repurposed for use in Young Fives/Kindergarten and 1st Grade Classrooms.


TECH MILLAGE SUCCESsFULLY RENEWED ON MAY 4TH, 2021! 

Thank you Monroe County voters for renewing the Tech Millage! It will provide continued opportunities to our staff and students that directly impact teaching and learning in Bedford classrooms for another 5 years.

THIS INCLUDES:

  • Chromebooks for students in all grades K-12
  • Scheduled refresh cycle for aging 1:1 Chromebooks at grades 4 and 9
  • Replacement of aging classroom projectors with 65" interactive flat panels which offers better visual clarity, visibility and interactivity while also providing huge energy cost savings
  • Replacement of aging classroom teaching tools such as document cameras, teacher laptops, audio
  • Online instructional tools for teachers and students such as Brainpop, Moby Max, Zearn, Screencastify, EdPuzzle, and more
  • Infrastructure upgrades like expansion of bandwidth to allow for synchronous learning throughout the district
  • Wireless system upgrades as well as expanded wifi access outside of each school building for 24/7 access
  • Increasing network security to provide greater protection of staff and student data


HOW ARE BEDFORD STUDENTS USING TECHNOLOGY?

Chromebooks provide the flexibility for anytime and anywhere learning. Bedford is a Google Apps for Education district which provides students cloud based resources to create, manage, and share their learning. Students have choice, personalization, and freedom to share their learning to best meet their strengths and needs. Students are using online curriculum materials and textbooks that allow them to interact with text and multimedia to provide a deeper understanding of the material with multi-modality components.

Students in grades K-8 learn about establishing a positive digital footprint and how to be responsible, respectful, and safe online with the implementation of a digital safety and personal privacy curriculum.

Students are provided with a variety of formative assessment opportunities in the classroom such as Kahoot, Socrative, Quizziz, and Google forms to share their learning.

The implementation of the Schoology learning management system K-12 provides a common district-wide communication portal, as well as the delivery and storage of instructional materials, and student work flow management with 24/7 access to learning materials.

The use of videoconferencing tools provides the opportunity for students in Bedford to connect and collaborate with students throughout the world. This technology also provides opportunities to engage with professionals that students would not otherwise be able to encounter in person. This has included collaborations with students in New York City during the height of the global pandemic, book clubs with students across the globe, and special virtual field trips touring Monticello, the Alaskan Iditarod race, and the Global Read Aloud Project, to name a few.

Bedford will continue to research and invest in unique learning opportunities, robust materials, and updated equipment to give our Bedford students rich digital experiences to help them live and learn in an increasingly digital world.
