Teaching & Learning

Technology Integration

Technology occupies an important place in students' lives. ... By integrating technology into the classroom, you are changing the way teachers used to teach (lectures six hours a day) and provides students with the tools that will take them into the 21st century.

KMMI - Montgomery Media Institute - A California Partnership Academy

This is a three-year educational program designed to prepare students for college while it trains them for entry into a wide range of media careers. Using state of the art technology, students are taught a broad range of media skills in a project-based environment. Students will produce advertisements and informational materials for actual clients (clubs and organizations in both the school and community). In addition to producing a daily live broadcast, students develop a media portfolio that culminates with a Capstone Project completed during their senior year.
