Wilson Hill Update November 22nd-December 6th
Wilson Hill has improved technology over the past year! All classrooms have smartboards that are used on a daily basis. In addition to the smartboards, Wilson Hill has two computer labs with 30 computers in each lab. Also, new to Wilson Hill this year, are 30 laptops that can be checked out by classroom teachers. A big thanks to Mr. Keith Schlarb, District Technology Coordinator, for making efforts to improve technology at Wilson Hill and throughout the district! Our focus with technology is to use it as a tool that involves students in activities that require 21st century learning skills (Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Problem Solving). Wilson Hill will continue to seek ways to integrate technology to improve teaching and learning.
