ENGAGE! Chromebooks & Collaborative Furniture

Students with chromebooks Aligned with the District’s Gradual Release of Responsibility (GRR) instructional model is the critical need to provide learning environments which engage students in collaborative and productive work in order to produce evidence of their learning.  

Extensive research and best practice shows that providing mobile devices and classroom furniture to support student’s ability to easily and comfortably interact with their teacher, fellow students, and content provides an optimal educational experience.  

To that end, the Marana district implemented ENGAGE! “Connect & Collaborate to Create!”, to incorporate student and teacher assigned mobile devices and new collaborative furniture in all classrooms.
