Information Technology

Technology at Warrensburg Central School District. 

   Classroom memories from childhood recall images of dusty green chalkboards, manual pencil sharpeners and textbook covers made out of brown paper bags. While remnants of those old school days remain in classrooms around the country, many have been catapulted into the future with digital whiteboards, iPads for Kindergarten and Chromebooks replacing textbooks. Technology abound, and with Generation Z’s digital futures ahead of them, it’s only natural that schools are embracing the role technology can play in enriching the learning experience. Who best to support this movement than teachers themselves? The Internet has a “major impact” on the students ability to access content, resources and materials, and many teachers are finding that it helps their ability to interact with students. 
    The integration of technology in classrooms is an ongoing and monumental task. It’s no small feat by any means, but as the U.S. continues its decline in global education rankings, something needs to change. Of course, simply handing kids iPads and writing on digital whiteboards is not a silver bullet for improving the educational system. Technology by itself will almost never change education. Changing educational practices is to change the beliefs and values of teachers, administrators, parents and other educational stakeholders—and that’s a cultural issue, not a technological one ... It’s about processes and people rather than bits and bytes.
