Harrison County students taking advantage of technology

Updated: Tuesday, August 19 2014, 05:49 PM EDT
HARRISON COUNTY, Ohio -- Harrison County school students are starting the new school year with a technological edge.
Students in grades K-6 have been using iPads for the past 2 years. Now grades 7-12 will be working with new Google Chromebooks.
Teresa Dunlap, a freshman English teacher at Harrison Central High School, predicts the Chromebooks are going to be a big help.
“Whether or not students go to college or go straight into a career, they are going to have to know how to use the technology,” she said.
Anna Minalga, who teaches English Language Arts and gifted students, said she’s excited her students can research at home.
“Being able to have students write their drafts, revise, and final copy all on the computer really cuts back on their notebook supply, and I’ll get to see their revisions at their Google docs that they'll turn into me," Minalga said.
The Chromebook saves data automatically to students' online accounts in the cloud.
School officials were able to get the $340 Chromebooks through the permanent approvement levy. The students can also take them home and have access to the internet. They can also purchase insurance for $31 and the parents and students have to sign a consent form.
