Hudson Connected Learning

Hudson Connected Learning 

We are excited to begin the 2020-2021 school year, and a new era in our Hudson Connected Learning program. This year, we are beginning with our 3rd generation of devices. What once began as an initiatve to put a computer in the hands of each student in grades 9-12 has now grown to ensuring devices are available for all our students grades 3-12. In addition to this, grades K-2 are equipped with classroom sets of devices that are available at a ratio close to 2:1. There is no doubt we have come a long way since this journey began. We are excited about what the future holds for students at Hudson Schools!

Apple iPad and Logitech Rugged Combo 3 boosts student potential, letting them type, create, and thrive—in class, at home, and wherever they may go. Four versatile use modes give students the opportunity to succeed in any scenario. Whether it’s group projects, coding, or writing an essay, Rugged Combo has a mode for it.

Type Mode: Dock the keyboard upright and type away.  Viewing Mode: Fold back the keyboard and pull out the kickstand to watch educational videos and more.  Sketch Mode: Collapse the screen to sketch or take handwritten notes with Logitech Crayon.  Read Mode: Fold the keyboard back to read books, articles, and more.  Camera Mode: The opening in the case allows students to take photos or videos.
