Middle and High School students have assigned laptops and Elementary students share laptops. After a long struggle with internet service provided via antennae Silverton now has a fiber connection to high speed internet.
Our computer science and technology classes focus on creativity and 21st Century skills. Students are learning about how to be responsible digital citizens, how to program their own video games, they are learning physical computing which involves programming with Arduino, Makey Makey and Rasberry Pi. Throughout the classes we apply GAFE Google Apps For Education and Microsoft Office applications.
We have a Maker Space in the school that we use to drive creativity and hands on making. Our summer program had a Maker Corps intern for summer 2014, check out some of the great summer projects by clicking on the link below.
