New Technology Helps All Students Learn
Huron Valley Schools is committed to providing 21st Century learning environments for all our students. Here is a quick update on the latest technology initiatives around the Huron Valley Schools...
21st Century Skills
Huron Valley Schools rolled out an exciting and innovative program this year called 21st Century Skills. 21st Century Skills is a class designed for all sixth and seventh grade students. In a technology rich environment, these classes focus on the 4 C's: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Collaboration. Next year an elective 8th grade course will also be offered allowing students to further explore areas of particular interest to them.
New Technology Equipment
With support from our community, funds from the 2009 Bond have been used to ensure all of our 21st Century classrooms are state-of-the-art with SMART Boards, laptops, digital cameras, and SMART Response Systems. In addition, we installed new computers at the elementary and middle schools. We have also installed new SMART Boards, document cameras and projectors throughout the schools. This summer we will be purchasing tablet computers including iPads, Kindles and Nooks to be used by students in elementary, middle school and high school as part of a program to evaluate these technologies.
Technology Integration Team
This year, we provided additional technology support with Technology Mentors at the elementary and Technology Integrators at the Middle Schools. The focus of the Technology Integration Program is having participants experience how technology can serve as a catalyst in the learning process regardless of the content area. For teachers, the experience is a process that can be directly applied to their lessons with a project-based, student-driven curriculum. The Technology Mentors and Integrators facilitate this process.
