FHTMS One-to-One Laptop Program
Our district school board and the staff and administration at FHTMS are proud to continue to include our One-to-One Laptop Program as part of our continuous effort to offer a contemporary curriculum and school environment that fosters digital learning and innovation in teaching and learning. FHTMS staff are continually learning and developing methods to integrate technology and digital learning practices into the curriculum. We currently use a digital learning management system called “NEO” which has elements that facilitate blended learning (mixture of face-to-face and online learning), Project Based Learning, flexible assessments, timely feedback, and parent access. FHTMS students also regularly utilize Google Suite applications and other digital tools in their daily class lessons, and to curate Personalized Learning Plans, digital portfolios, and presentations for student-led parent conferences.
FHTMS students will be issued a laptop computer to care for and use for the school year. Our 7th and 8th grade students have the privilege of using the laptop in school and at home. Students in grades 6 will use the laptops at school only. These mobile computers and our network and technology infrastructure have been carefully chosen and configured by our Information Technology Department to sufficiently support students and school staff engaged in digital learning opportunities.
Our goal is to support students at school in the use of this valuable technology. But, support from parents and guardians at home is just as important. The links included on this page contain additional information on the 1:1 laptop progam, our technology systems, how to cultivate responsible, safe and productive computing at home, technology troubleshooting, and more. We encourage you to review these resources.
