    Highlighting Innovative Practice 
     
    In October Somerville Middle School introduced their Chromebook One to One Initiative.  The whole school community has been excited and eager to start using these great tools in their daily teaching and learning.

    Here is how 6th Grade Mathematics teacher Wendy Hunt used the Chromebook as an authentic part of her classroom practice; "My 7th period class calculated approximately how many pieces of paper Mrs. Hunt's math classes will save this year by doing our math minutes on our Chrome Books instead of on paper.  This picture shows how much we will save."
