One-to-One Computing

One-to-One computing offers many benefits to our modern day classroom and learner.  Bellevue’s expectation is that the student will have their computing device (laptop) with them for use in all their classes and for continued use at home.  The laptop will allow students to access learning materials and engage in real-time inquiry as their questions arise.  Adaptive learning software has evolved to a point that students can track their own learning and have confidence in their progress. Laptops also support Problem-Based Learning, allowing students to research, collaborate, and produce a final product to share with peers, teachers and parents.

apParent Online

The Bellevue School District has worked with AssistX Education to make the mobile app, apParent Online, available to you at no cost. The app will allow you to monitor and manage your child’s district issued laptop. apParent Online is available for Android and iOS devices.

For more information, please see Student Device Monitoring for Families.

Why One-to-One?

Having the students take their laptops home provides several advantages. Once students leave the school campus, they are exposed to a different set of tools at home.  Some have equivalent technology, though not the same software; others have faster, more powerful computers and become frustrated with the school devices; others have no technology at home and are limited in what they can do after the school day.  By issuing students the same laptops we hope to make technology access and learning opportunities equitable.  All students have the same tools aligned with teaching and designed to best support their learning.

From the teachers’ perspective, a major advantage is that students are ready to start learning when the bell rings.  Laptops no longer have to be handed out on a daily basis.  Ten to twenty minutes of instruction time is lost each time a laptop has to be passed out and collected.
