Our mission is to prepare students to become lifelong learners capable of integrating technology fluently in their lives. We believe that introducing our students to technology tools ad digital citizenship will better prepare them to achieve in post-secondary education and in the workplace. Our technology program must embrace the new and ever-changing technologies and incorporate those technologies into the classroom.

Technology is expanding the availability of learning beyond the classroom to be 24x7.
Technology enbles us to respond more effectively to different learning styles and needs and engages our students.
Teaching students to be resourceful and how to discern the value of information available to them via technology is critical.
We must teach students to be socially responsible when using technology.
Technology can be an valuable tool to encourage collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking in our students to prepare them for life in a rapidly changing global economy.

"Did You Know?" is a video created in September 2006 by Karl Fisch of Arapahoe High School in Colorado. According to Mr. Fisch, he remixed content from David Warlick, Thomas Friedman, Ian Jukes, Ray Kurzweil, and others, and incorporated music from "The Last of the Mohicans". His intent was to get teachers at his school thinking and entering into discussions about the world their students will face, and how that should impact their classrooms. With permission, Scott McLeod modified it. Both have given permission to download and link to it. As Mr. Fisch emailed to Mr. McLeod,
I'm glad the presentation is making an impact - that was the idea, of course (although mostly for my own staff, I didn't know it would take on a life of its own!). I hope that the conversations it starts don't just stop at conversations, but actually translate into actions for our students.
This is well worth the few minutes of your time to see the presentation.
