Technology is a Tool

Students are permitted to use technology in the classroom to support their writing, look up vocabulary words, take notes, and Kahoot it!


The disclaimer? Students are responsible for the care and keeping of their personal devices. Students who use their technology in a way that does not support classroom instruction will lose their privilege to use technology in the classroom.


Technology side effects may include increased knowledge and skill at locating pertinent information in an academic setting, increased efficiency in receiving and disseminating knowledge and assignments, and most severe, an enjoyment of the learning process. Please talk to an educational professional if these side effects become bothersome. :)
