We live in a dynamic world surrounded by endless amounts of information. Many parents and educators agree that students must be able to effectively use technology to be competitive in the workplace after graduation.

This year, Fulton County Schools is increasing the use of technology – both in and out of the classroom. Innovative technology not only provides access to information, but it also provides a “mobile” classroom.  While technology is no replacement for an inspiring teacher, the use of mobile devices expands student access to the teacher and makes materials far more available. It also allows teachers to track students’ progress instantly.

Technology can provide financial savings by providing curricular updates that aren’t tied to the replacement of old textbooks. The 24/7 access of technology also allows students to collaborate with others around the globe.  Using modern technology they can make audio/visual presentations, create websites or blogs, record/edit spoken word demonstrations, create digital photography or a video, compose digital music, run a class newspaper or even manage a web-based school radio or TV station.

 

Here are just a few ways Fulton County Schools has expanded technology ...
