Mission Statement

To be a safe and responsible digital citizen that enhances my ability and skills to critically think, collaborate, communicate, and be creative through the use of technology.

In addition to the great technology tools homeroom teachers are already integrating into their everyday instruction with students, Powderhorn students have the opportunity to increase their skills at a deeper level with technology being offered as a specials. This opportunity for our students will increase our students technology skills and allow every Powderhorn student the ability to better adapt to the ever changing world of technology. By attending technology as a specials, students will have 45 instructional minutes of technology for three consecutive days as part of their specials (art, music, gym and technology) rotations. The learning happening in technology class can then be transferred into students homeroom classes. This transfer and application of knowledge should increase student engagement and allow students to apply and utilize their technology skills, by using a variety of media and software formats, to show their understanding of various content areas.
