  • What is 1:1 integration?

    1-to-1 integration means one device for each student. The 1:1 Integration program provides students with personal portable computers to enhance opportunities for learning. The devices help schools engage the digital generation by nurturing individual (or 1-to-1) learning experiences.

    1:1 programs are an element in an international move towards individualized learning, which can increase independence and self-initiated learning in students and extend their learning beyond the classroom.

    Students who have their own laptop computers have been found to take greater pride and ownership over the knowledge they create, with a flow-on to more flexible forms of schooling.

    1-to-1 programs can extend formal learning communities to include parents, siblings and other people important in students' lives. Also, the programs can lead to initiating global communication and collaboration and developing creative expression.  (Smart Classrooms, Queensland Dept. of Education and Training)

    The Freedom Christian School 1:1 integration program will allow instructors to appropriately differentiate education for all their students. Fully-managed devices will be purchased from Freedom Christian School prior to the beginning of the school year. These devices will belong to the students but be used exclusively for classroom work as long as the student is attending Freedom Christian School. The benefits of 1:1 integration include the following...

    1. A "fully-managed" device means the content is controlled by the school administration.

    2. Each student will have unlimited use of Google Apps for Education free-of-charge.

    3. All students will work within the FCS-online.org domain insuring students' work cannot be lost or misplaced.

    4. The experience of each user will be completely uniform with peers and instructors.

    5. The device has been tested for all-day battery life.

    6. The experience will be safe and ad-free for each user.

    7. And so much more! (See 1:1 Program Parent Agreement form)
