Welcome to the GISD Technology Webpage!

Giddings Independent School District provides a wide variety of technological resources to students and staff for the purpose of achieving its educational mission. These resources are provided and maintained at the District’s-and therefore the public’s-expense. Members of the school community are to use them responsibly and as good stewards of this community resource.

Technology and instruction go hand in hand in Giddings ISD. Please take a minute to click on the side links to explore the technology available in Giddings schools.

You will find a mix of technology integration ideas and how-to's on these pages.

CHROMEBOOK ONE-TO-ONE

Giddings ISD is officially Chromebook one-to-one. One-to-one refers to one computer for every student. The term one-to-one is applied to programs that provide all students in a school district with their own laptop, tablet computer, or other computing device.

There are some added administrative challenges with reaching Chromebook one-to-one status, such as password management. Along with the Technology department, teachers now have access to reset student Google/Gmail passwords. Use the Reset Google Passwords link under 'Helpful Links' to access the Google console. You can bookmark the page for easier access.

Having some trouble with a Chromebook? Try factory resetting it (aka Powerwash). Most software issues with Chromebooks can be resolved by factory reset. See Chromebook Reset under 'Helpful Links' for instructions.
