Chromebooks

 
Dana has been using Google Apps for Education tools since 2012. Now called G Suite, these tools offer anywhere/anytime collaboration opportunities for teachers and students. 
 
Beginning in January of 2014, Chromebooks were introduced into our classrooms. In the fall of 2015, Dana became a one-to-one Chromebook environment. 
 
You will see some of the impressive projects and learning opportunities happening at Dana when you attend you son or daughter's Student Led Conference on May 25.
