Making It Work

Too often "Technology" is spoken as an element in and of itself. Like a comb, it is a meaningless something unless it is used for it's intended purpose. In today's world, technology is infused into practically everything we do. Most of the time it is used without much thought as to what is being done, like combing your hair. While using technology, be it a desktop computer, tablet, phone, an audio/visual device, or connecting to a network via a wired or wireless connection, the expectation is that it is to be seamless and just work, and work without much thought as to what makes it work.

Our goal, in the Information Technology Department, is to get to the point where the technology being used just works so it is not piece that takes extra effort or thought while using it for instruction and learning. Using any element of technology should have the quality of being seamless so it is integrated in classroom instruction, student learning, and administrative tasks.

The technology department is a customer service oriented department that is available to help you be successful in the important work you and your students have to do. Please contact us with your questions, service request, and even training needs. We understand that everyone is at a different level in ability. We are also understanding of how to have technology be used in a way that is helpful.

Check out the Resources page and come back often as more resources will be available. There will be videos, quick-tips, step-by-step instructions and other items. We hope you find it helpful.
