SWES DIGITAL DIGEST
Galloping Into the Future!
Welcome to SWES OCTOBER Edition of our Digital Digest!
Changing World, Changing Schools
Imagine this...you are given a job, told to join with five other people, in other locations, and solve a problem or create a product you know nothing about. That is the job world many of our children will be entering! Through our 1:1 lap-tops for 5th grade initiative and our digital learning platforms, we are preparing our students to take on challenges you and I have not yet imagined. Through EDMODO, our students interact in a safe collaborative environment, both in and out of school, getting support while practicing effective online behaviors. Behaviors they will need to succeed in their future.
Ask your 5th grade child about their online learning tools. Ask your younger children what kinds of technology they interacted with during their school day. You will be surprised to learn how much your students know and have learned about digital tools.
