1 1:WORLD Family Handbook

2 WHAT IS 1:WORLD? The Corvallis School District s 1:World (pronounced One to World) initiative is about using the most effective tools, including tablets and other technology, to connect students to their own learning. This shift in the way teachers teach and students learn emphasizes the important skills and information they will need when they graduate. Through innovative instruction and technology, students will have extended access to learning opportunities before, during and after school. The focus is on 21st Century learning skills: communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. This movement within education expands from the traditional focus of reading, writing and arithmetic, to preparing students expansively to enter and evolve within the global workforce. The 1:World initiative provides a new platform to highlight and strengthen these skills, which are now more essential for all students to succeed in the next stages of their lives as global citizens. Along with creating students who are world-class learners, engaged citizens and leaders of the future, the District s goals for 1:World are as follows: Focus on 21st Century learning skills Close the opportunity gap Personalize learning opportunities Every student graduates Beginning with the school year, the District formed a Technology Advisory Committee, with parents, community members, administrators, teachers, students, technology department staff representatives and a school board member liaison. The committee guides the development of policies and procedures for implementing instructional technology with recommendations made to the Superintendent.

4 Overview Students in kindergarten, first and second grades have dedicated mini tablets assigned for in-class use. Students in third, fourth, and fifth grades receive tablets for the student to use in school and possibly at home. Secondary students (grades 6 12) receive take-home tablets for the student to use at school and at home. Students are expected to care for and bring their assigned device to school fully charged every day. Students must also abide by the Technology Responsible Use Agreement, signed when they first receive a tablet. The use of technology in individual classrooms differs, depending on grade level, subject matter and teacher. These devices are intended to supplement and deepen instruction, and enrich and extend the learning material. Students in middle and high school may also use them for managing their class assignments. 1:WORLD GOALS Focus on 21st Century learning skills: critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity. Close the opportunity gap Personalize learning opportunities Every student graduates

5 A few examples of how tablets have been used in the District are: Elementary Reading Students record themselves reading and play back to self-assess fluency and accuracy. Elementary Math Students use an app to record their work on a long division math problem, similar to a white board. The teacher can then replay it with individual students for assessment and identifying areas for review or additional guidance. Physical Education Students video themselves throwing a Frisbee three instructed ways. Students then view the video to self-assess with a partner based on criteria and supply proof of assignment to the teacher. Secondary Science Students use an app to simulate experiments using atoms, protons and neutrons that would otherwise not be possible in a tradition classroom setting. Page 4

6 Timeline Phase I: In , tablets were distributed to middle school and Crescent Valley High School science classrooms, a third-grade class and various District staff. Phase II: In addition to the above, in , all teachers received a tablet. Additionally, students at Mountain View Elementary, Linus Pauling and Cheldelin Middle Schools, Corvallis and Crescent Valley High School AVID students, and English-only students at Garfield and Lincoln Elementary Schools also received tablets. Phase III: In addition to the above, in , all students in grades 6 8 at Franklin School and students in eleven selected classrooms also received tablets. Classrooms were selected through the school district s Innovation Grants. Phase IV: Distribution for the school year includes all of the above and all classrooms at Garfield and Lincoln Elementary, and select grade levels at Adams, Hoover, Jefferson, and Wilson Elementary Schools. Devices Student tablets come with a case (a), charger and cable (b); keyboard (c) and styli (d) will be available for classrooms to check out at each school. Page 5

7 APPLICATIONS All student tablets come with the following core applications ( apps ) loaded for immediate use: AccessMyLibrary Numbers (Grades 6-12) Google Drive Pages ibooks QR Reader imovie Showbie Keynote Socrative Student Notability STARS Schools may identify additional core apps that will be provided. App installation and deletion will be controlled by the District or individual school. All newly requested apps are vetted through a formal app approval process, with strong consideration of the Children s Online Privacy Protection (COPPA). All District provided apps will be free of cost to the student. SET UP Student devices are configured for WiFi connectivity, and with filter settings, mobile device management, and core applications. At the beginning of the school year, devices are checked out to students in grades 3-12 and staff assist with the initial set-up: Tablet is turned on District student network account is entered The tablet automatically connects to the District WiFi network The tablet automatically is configured according to the student s location and grade Page 6

8 STUDENT DEVICE ACCOUNTS A management system utilizing Student Accounts is used to provide a secure process for updating and managing devices and automate application downloads to student devices. Devices in grades K-2 remain at school and a Student Account is not required. For students in grades 3-12, devices may be taken home. District staff create an individual Student Account using a District-generated address and a password is provided. The Student Account can be used to download District-approved apps, back up student work, and create a portfolio of the student s work as they progress through the grade levels. Student Account content is available to the student and parent at any time. Tablets detected by the device management system to contain a nonapproved app will automatically become locked. Tablets may only be unlocked by designated school staff. Password Login for Grades 3-5 Classroom teacher retains a copy of student login information. Each student uses their login while in class to download approved apps or content. Password Login for Grades 6-12 Students manage their login information and will use the Self- Service App on their tablet to download District-approved apps for free. Please contact your school office if you have any questions about your child s Student Account. Page 7

9 STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES Middle and high school students are expected to bring their tablet to school each day fully charged. To protect their device from damage, students are also expected to follow the safety guidelines, such as using the protective covers and cases and not storing the device in extreme heat or cold temperatures. If a tablet is damaged, the student needs to report it to the school Technology Specialist immediately. Malfunctions or technical issues are not acceptable excuses for failing to complete an assignment, unless no other means of completion exists. Many core apps have web-based access from a traditional computer or laptop. Students will be instructed by school staff on how to back up their content. All material on the tablet must adhere to the values and policies of the Corvallis School District Student Responsible Use Agreement. CONNECTIVITY WiFi is provided by the District in schools and classrooms where devices are in use. WiFi is provided throughout the inside school campus or the classroom. Students may link their tablet to their home WiFi, if available. There is no plan for city-wide WiFi, but students may use WiFi at the public library and other locations outside the District. Internet connection on a student s District-provided tablet is always routed through the District compliant internet filter (CIPA), regardless of location. Page 8

10 ASSURANCE PROGRAM Parents and students must sign proper agreements before students receive a tablet. The District hosts its own optional assurance program for students. The program is called Corvallis Assurance Program (CAPe). Parents may also check with other third-party vendors and their homeowners/renters insurance carrier for coverage. CAPe insurance has a nominal annual enrollment fee. Discounts are available for students who qualify for the free and reduced meal program. CAPe covers one free damage repair per plan year, such as a cracked screen. For a tablet that is significantly damaged, lost or stolen, a deductible of up to $150 applies. Manufacturer defects are covered free of charge. Without CAPe, the family is liable for the full cost of the repair or replacement, up to $400. The CAPe form is required within 15 days of ipad checkout. The form includes an enroll/decline option. If no form is received, the student device will not be enrolled in the CAPe program. The full CAPe fact sheet and agreement are available in the school office and on the school district website, Page 9

11 STUDENTS Support Students issued devices will attend an instructional Bootcamp at school. The Bootcamp has five presentations, which are also available to view at for students and families. Presentations include: How to Use Your Tablet Safety and Security Staying Organized Cyberbullying Digital Citizenship Page 11

12 PARENTS AND FAMILY Your child s school will provide parent information and tutorial nights for families interested in learning more about 1:World. Please check with the school office for additional details. Parents with students enrolled in the free and reduced meal program may submit necessary paperwork directly to the programs below for consideration for home Internet service for $9.95/month. a) Comcast Internet Essentials Program or b) CenturyLink Internet Basics Program or Page 11

13 PRIVACY AND SECURITY Student tablets are routed through the District compliant internet filter (CIPA), which blocks inappropriate content. In addition, tablets are configured with built-in restrictions based on age ratings. In this way, student devices are no different than any other computer in our schools. The District s ability to monitor and track student and staff usage of the Internet and network is still in place with the tablets. This is the same monitoring capability in place for any device or computer connecting to the Internet from the District network. The District has the ability to monitor downloaded apps; however, we do not have the ability to view content within those apps. The District does not gather content information that is sent to or from a tablet. The Corvallis School District also works with other community locations frequented by students, such as the Boys & Girls Club, to keep tablets secure when students attend. Page 12
