School - 1:1 Technology


1:1 SMG Technology Initiative 2015-2016


Students in grades 5-8 will have the opportunity to participate in the1:1 SMG Technology Initiative this year.  This program allows each student to use a wireless device during the school year.  The student uses the computer all day in most classes. Some teachers have the students use notes saved in various places for the convenience of the students.  At home, access to the Internet is through a VPN line that insures our students’ safety on the Internet at all times.  WIFI connectivity is available throughout the campus for wireless high-speed access to the Internet.  This is an integral component of our 1:1 device endeavor at St. Mary of Gostyn School.  


This year we are moving forward and initiating a program, Google Classroom, to become a Google school.  Grades 5-8 will use Google docs, slides and sheets and save work to the cloud.  Each student in these grades will have a Google gmail acct with access only to members of our domain, stmarygotyn.org.  Students can go to Google Classroom and find their assignments, upload the finished assignment, and then receive an evaluation via their Google acct. for the assignment.  Electronic transfer couldn’t be easier and students learn what they need to function in high school and beyond.


Students in Grades 6 & 8 will use a Surface RT tablet and students in Grades 5 & 7 will use Samsung Chromebooks.  These will be issued to the students shortly after school begins.  Packets will be given to them and a date for the roll out of the devices.  The students will be given the devices on that specific date when they return all forms and bring a computer carrying case for the device. 


Weekly grades can be seen online using Edline for Grades 6,7, & 8.  Grades are updated weekly.
