Van Buren Local Schools places tremendous value on technology and how its use will benefit our staff and students. Chromebooks and laptops are issued to each student in grades 4-12. That is over 900 machines in total! Instructors are encouraged to integrate any available technology into their lessons and students eagerly use the computers to complete assignments.
Here are some other "Techno-Tidbits" that one might find interesting:
- Desktop Computer Support, Network Access, and Web Hosting are managed internally by our full time Network Administrator.
- Smart Boards in every classroom increase classroom efficiency and encourage participation.
- Student e-mail is provided and encouraged as a safe, filtered, and monitored means of communication for students of any age.
- Web based "Moodle" classrooms allows select activities to be completed on the students own time from any computer with Internet Access - at school or away. Encourages parent interaction.
