ICT and Chromebook Guides
At The Fulham Boys School we believe it is vital that ICT is integrated into our curriculum, in order to prepare students for the digital world around them, and allow them to easily access their work outside of school. We require all students to purchase or lease a Chromebook through the school. These devices allow pupils to access ICT during every lesson in the day, if required. This allows the boys to effortlessly access their school email and their Google Drive (cloud based) storage, to access resources and complete assignments via Google Classroom, and to make use of a plethora of Google Apps for Education to supplement and support learning both in school and at home.
It is hoped that this page will provide a range of information that will support students and parents in relation to the use of Chromebooks. The Fulham Boys School is committed to being at the forefront of the use of ICT in school. The information that will be contained within these pages will develop over time and the majority of the information contained will be compiled and put together by students themselves.
