Technology

Technology is the best tool we have in education. However, it is only effective if we use it for active, authentic learning. In a technology rich environment, students don't just "learn" technology. Technology provides access to primary source material and information, ways for students to collaborate, and provides the opportunity for them to express their understanding. It is a means, not an end.

At W.T. Lewis Elementary, we are dedicated to incorporating technology into every aspect of learning. We believe that the students should be involved in using the technology along with the teacher. Therefore, they are involved in their own learning.
