The use of technology enhances the way we teach and engages our students in learning. It also is a powerful tool in helping us to keep our commitment to equip our students with 21st century skills. Our community, district, and school work together to meet the goal of providing each of our classrooms with the latest and greatest access to technology.
Appropriate Use of Technology
We know that using smart devices, computers, and the Internet is a lot of fun. However, its use at school is a privilege, intended for educational purposes, and comes with responsibility. At HMS, we encourage safe and responsible use of technology. Please refer to the district Acceptable Use Policy in the left column of this page.
We offer three different levels of application-based computer classes. Students quickly become skilled in a variety of software applications that they use for projects and presentations in other content areas.
- Google SketchUp
- Microsoft Office
- Adobe Photoshop
Our media center is a dynamic resource. It’s a great place to check out a book as well as to use technology for research purposes and to collaborate with others.
Whether you are looking for an Accelerated Reader book, Googling current events, or gathering up fast facts about a study topic, our media center is at your service. We invite you to visit us often!
