Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, all new teacher laptops and all replacement laptops issued to teachers will be the Lenovo 11e model, similar to those used by our students in the 1:1 laptop initiative.
This upgrade will better serve you as you design learning activities and projects for students informed by our Lifelong-Learner Competencies and Seven Pathways, particularly Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Interactive Technologies, and Connectivity. We believe this adjustment will help teachers better plan for student learning as it relates to screen visibility and processing power. However, teacher-issued 11e laptops will be upgraded beyond the capabilities of the student laptops and even the previous, larger models of teacher laptops. The teacher-issued 11e will come standard with a 256GB SSD hard drive and 8GB of RAM.
