In this webinar, you’ll hear directly from the principal, tech specialists, and students at East Leyden High School about how they successfully built and launched a 1:1 program for all 3,500 students in their school district in the Chicago suburb of Franklin Park, Illinois. You’ll learn about Leyden’s Digital Evolution, a campaign to help students keep up with the changing times and enhance their educational experience, and how Chromebooks were chosen (after reviewing other tech options) to help them do so.

Learn how Google Chromebooks for Education allow schools, like East Leyden, to use the power and simplicity of the web for unlimited teaching and learning opportunities and to engage all constituents from parents, students, teachers, and administrators.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the unique benefits and features of Google Chromebooks for Education
