Using Technology at WGMS

We all have our ups and downs when using technology with our students. Always know, support is near and you are never alone!

Technology Application TEKS

The core subject areas in grades K-8 include the "new" (as of 2012-13) Tech Apps TEKS.

Teachers need to write applicable Tech App TEKS into their lesson plans in Forethought/Eduphoria, implementing the Tech App TEKS through their ongoing lesson designs.
