Media Center Mission Statement
The Fulton County Schools Media and Educational Technology department promotes academic excellence by empowering student and staff to be effective, discriminating users of ideas and information. Additionally, Fulton County Schools Media and Educational Technology Instructors (METIs) assist instructional staff in using technology effectively for differentiating instruction and providing rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning experiences for all students. The Fulton County Schools Media and Educational Technology department facilitates the development of balanced and relevant collections of digital and print resources for teacher and student use. Digital resources are provided for all students that are accessible anytime, anywhere, on any web-enabled computer, laptop, or mobile device.
SL Lewis is excited to implement Google Apps for Education. All students who return a permission form will be assigned an account to use for school assignments only. Google Apps for Education (GAFE) is a free cloud based suite of productivity tools for students and teachers. Students and teachers utilize GAFE to create, collaborate, problem solve, and communicate solutions to local, national or global issues. See your teacher for access information.
