Middle School Teacher and Technology Committee representative Shelly Jenema wrote the grant for NMCS. NMCS is a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) school that allows teachers and students to use the G Suite tools to create and collaborate with ease.
“The value of collaboration in education is priceless,” says Mrs. Jenema. “Students can give immediate feedback to each other as they work together. Teachers are also able to comment and give feedback to groups of students or individual students.” The Google Chromebook management console also ensures safety and security for each student and each device. Google Administrators on campus can monitor each device, seeing in real-time what students are doing on each device. Apps and web pages can be restricted by group or individual user.

The grant gives kids a greater sucess as they enter middle school where computer skills are needed.

Mrs. Jenema adds, “Success of the program is determined as students are able to use Chromebooks and technology to enhance their learning. Their ability to create and collaborate with teacher feedback will become much easier thanks to the Chromebooks. We will also see success as these students enter middle school and are familiar with using laptops for research, collaboration and presentation.”
