Technology
 


Technological literacy in the modern world means the ability to use, manage, understand, and assess technology.  Students should know how to use new technologies, understand how new technologies are developed, and have skills to analyze how new technologies affect us, our nation, and the world.  Technology is the innovation, change, or modification of the natural environment to satisfy perceived human needs and wants. 
 

“The people who resist change will be confronted by the growing number of people who see that better ways...are available thanks to technology.” - Bill Gates

STEM Technology’s focus is designed to assist the teachers with effectively incorporating technology into instruction.  To ensure that all students are using technology teachers are encouraged to incorporate technology through the use of Promethean flipcharts & lessons, Webquests, Active Expressions or Active votes, Active Slates, Video and Digital Photography.

Students who use technology develop the academic knowledge and work habits that are necessary for success in higher education and the workplace.
