Technology has been an integral part of human existence since prehistoric times. Here at Irma Rangel YWLS, we focus on the need to help students develop skills to enhance technology as of today and in the future by allowing every student in our school to have a laptop. We strongly promote digital citizenship with usage of Schoology and Edmodo in the classrooms. This allows teachers and students to communicate about upcoming lessons and events outside and inside of the classroom.
Having laptops will prepare all students for the future, and simultaneously teaches about the evolution of society's technical means. Through this approach, individuals learn to fuse ideas and concepts from many subject areas while relating to their own interests and backgrounds.This encourages students to become flexible and engaged learners; attributes they will use throughout their academic, personal, and social lives.
