Technology

ISTE 2016
If you will stop a minute and think where technology was 10 years ago, there was no Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Siri, Amazon Echo, distance learning opportunities, webinars, web-exs, smart phones, smart watches, smart glasses, virtual reality, iPods, iPads, iPhones, surface tablets, air books, chrome books, Kindles, memory sticks, the cloud, apps for EVERYTHING …… we could go on like this for days, but the point is……. Technology is growing EXPONENTIALLY! Processor speeds are doubling ever 6 months OR LESS! 

Although impossible, the Bledsoe County School District is working at breakneck speed to keep up with the ever-changing technology. We believe it is essential to provide our students with the most advanced technology equipment and the most up-to-date education available  in the 21st Century. We must ensure our students will be fully prepared for further educational training or the world of work. Our staff works diligently to provide the most enriching educational experiences possible and put the most innovative equipment into the hands of both our teachers and our students. To do that, we must stay up-to-date with our purchasing decisions and staff training opportunities. We must be open to new ideas and innovative new teaching strategies. Students all sit with a smart phone in their pocket, why not capitalize on their immense technological skills and allow THEM to direct the learning? Rote memorization is no longer necessary when the world is literally at their fingertips! This is the most exciting time to be in education!
