Media and Techno Eagle Updates

Your EDHS connection for media and technology resources.

Welcome!

This is the first edition of the Media and Techno Eagle Updates. Each month we will be sharing new and awesome resources for you to checkout and use in your classroom. Some months we may have a specific type of focus and others may be all subjects. I hope you enjoy the resources and remember that if you see one you like and need help, please let us know in the Media Center.

Under Construction - EDHS Media Center

You may see lots of movement and changes over the next few months in the EDHS Media Center. We are currently working on updating the collection here at EDHS and are working through a major evaluation of materials that are currently on the shelves. What does this mean for you and your students? That means that we will be removing outdated and inaccurate resources and replacing them with new materials that will enhance student learning. We will be making sure that our collection is up to date and that the materials are giving the students the most accurate and reliable information possible.


We can use your help! If there are topics/research/projects that you do in your classes either semester that you know you and your students would be looking for resources on, please let me know those. I would like to create a list of topics to make sure as we are gathering new materials that we include.
