Student videos preparing classmates and teachers for 1:1 laptop initiative

Students at Davis High School are taking an active role in ensuring that their campus is ready this coming January to distribute laptops to all 1,700 of its students. To help with the one-to-one device deployment, the Davis audio/visual production class has made a series of videos for their classmates, as well as for their teachers.  

During the past month, Davis AV students have been working on laptop deployment training videos that were viewed by all Davis teachers this week. The entire Davis study body will watch the videos during the school’s laptop deployment scheduled for January 13-14, 2015. The class has also produced a series of videos to encourage students and parents to sign and return the district’s laptop loan agreement and pay a $25 nonrefundable security deposit.

“The videos play on a large screen in the commons area before and after school, as well as during lunch time,” said Davis PowerUp Director Wayne Hughes. “Our web technology students have also created flyers for parents and students.”

Davis is one of 14 high schools gearing up for the distribution of more than 18,000 laptops this coming January. The effort is part of the district’s digital transformation effort known as PowerUp, which includes providing every high school student with a laptop for learning at school and at home.
