For years schools have taught kids fundamental skills like math, reading, science and English. While those core classes remain the same, today’s technology is allowing students and teachers to explore learning in a whole new way.
Beresford High School is one school implementing technology into students’ critical thinking skills.
Just two years ago the school district secured funding to purchase an iPad for each student in the high school.
“Education is a changing entity and having the technology is something that you have to do to keep and up and prepare students for the next step,” said Beresford High School Principle Dustin Degen.
“Its a very short period of time from when you’re in High School to when you’re on the job market,” said Mark Winegar.
[Interestingly the staff were given professional development to help them get the most out of the technology. Just what every teacher needs 🙂 ]
