Why IT devices are needed in school?

Curriculum integration with the use of technology involves the infusion of technology as a tool to enhance the learning in a content area or multidisciplinary setting. Technology enables students to learn in ways not previously possible. Effective integration of technology is achieved when students are able to select technology tools to help them obtain information in a timely manner, analyze and synthesize the information, and present it professionally. We at Fountainhead believe that technology should become an integral part of the classroom.  Students will have to use computers for research/projects/collaboration for various subjects and so we expect students to bring their own IT devices to school i.e. Chromebook & laptops

Usage Guideline

Devices and Support

Important points to be kept in mind:

  1. If a Chromebook is exchanged / given to any other student and if it is misused or policy is violated by that student then the student id will be blocked for 3 working days in this case and the parents of the student who has violated the policy will be called to understand the policy and to sign the undertaking.

  1. If the Chromebook is exchanged or shared with any other student and if the Chromebook gets damaged by the user (other student), then the cost of repair/ replacement of spare part will be equally borne by the owner of the Chromebook and the user of the Chromebook.
