Dell Chromebook 11

Dell Chromebook 5190 2-in-1

Lee's Summit R-7 Provides a Chromebook for each K-12 Student

Since August 2015, the LSR7 School District has provided students from kindergarten through 12th grade equitable, one-to-one access to devices and future-ready learning resources through the Connect2Learn initiative.

We value listening to student voices about their evolving technological needs, and we adapt our programs accordingly. The LSR7 Instructional Technology Department distributed a student survey during the 2018-19 school year, and our students’ message was clear: 2 in 1 devices are what they need to succeed. For the 2019-20 school year, each student in grades 7 through 12 will receive a Dell Chromebook 5190 2-in-1 Convertible. Here are the features of the 5190 2-in-1:

  • Fold into tablets
  • Touchscreen
  • Self and world-facing cameras, which allow students to film and photograph in tablet mode
  • Optional stylus available for student purchase

“This Dell Chromebook 5190 2-in-1 is going to be a great device for both teachers to teach and students to learn,” said Jon Courtney, Instructional Technology Specialist.

The world-facing camera in tablet mode will give students the technical agility they need to flex their creative potential, as well.

“Students can be creators of content as opposed to just consuming content,” Mr. Courtney said.
