ALLENDALE, N.J. -- A technology initiative launched by the Allendale Board of Education earlier this month seems to be a huge success, NorthJersey.com reported.
Students at Brookside Middle School were all issued Chromebook laptops as part of a program to create a Google Applications Education School District, the story said. Chromebooks are cloud-based and use the Chrome OS from Google. They are virus-free, and most applications for the low-cost laptop computers are free.
Superintendent of Schools Michael Barcadepone told NorthJersey.com the computers are a big hit with students, who are using them in the classroom and outside on their own time.
The school board has endorsed the technology initiative, including it on its list of goals for 2015-16, the website said.
