School hands out Chromebooks to all incoming freshmen


Now that's a good way to start the year off on the right foot. 

As part of Norwalk Public Schools’ 1:1 Digital Learning Initiative, students at McMahon and Norwalk High School will use the Chromebooks in class as part of their coursework, and will be able to take the computers home for educational use off campus.

 “When we talk about learning today, everything we do is digital,“ said Ralph Valenzisi, chief of technology, innovations and partnerships for Norwalk Public Schools. In addition to handing out computers, the district launched the 1Million Project last school year in partnership with Sprint. The project gives out free 4-gigabyte wireless internet hotspots to students who otherwise don’t have access to the internet at home. In January, hotspots were given out to 250 students at Norwalk High School and Brien McMahon combined. The district aims to provide internet access to all high school students within the next two years.
