Technology

1:1 Device Program
Anthony Wayne utilizes a 1:1 Google Chromebook program, providing each student in grades 5-12 with a device for the purposes of facilitating the effective integration of technology into the classroom. 

Available Technology
All instructional areas in the District contain at least one dedicated enterprise-class wireless access point providing maximum bandwidth to connected computing devices for accessing the data network and Internet. Each classroom is configured so that instructors can project their computer display and interact with that content for the purpose of creating engaging and highly viewable instruction.

Computer labs are available for technology-specific tasks such as video editing, 3D animation and computer assisted design. Further, additional technology carts with specialized devices have been assigned to some faculty for specific classroom uses. Other available technology tools include SmartBoards, LCD televisions with Apple TVs, Clevertouch systems and LCD projectors.

Web Safety Filtering for Student Chromebooks

School-issued Chromebooks for students in grades 5-12 include a web content filtering system. This system is the same at school or at home when the student uses the Chromebook. In addition, the District is implementing the use of LightSpeed Alerts this year to monitor concerning student behaviors on AWLS owned Chromebooks for increased student safety.

As always, we ask that parents continue to monitor their child’s web and Chromebook use while at use outside of the school day. If you have questions, please contact Chris Hamady, Director of Technology at 419-877–5377 or email [email protected].
