Digital Transition

This year at #MHS we are transitioning to a more digital environment. In a few classes we are utilizing online or digital textbooks. In many classes, teachers are utilizing Google Classroom to facilitate the exchange of ideas and the delivery of content. Each student carries a Chromebook to class--and home--to access this digital content. We are also hoping that we are not just delivering digitally, but also giving freedom and power to create digitally, to collaborate digitally, and to discover digitally.

We are not attempting to go paperless, but we are trying to use less paper. We are not trying to remove the pen and notebook, but we are trying to add the pixel and screen. We don't desire to eliminate the connection created between teacher and student in a face to face environment within our own walls, but we do desire to have our students create greater connections to other educators and students outside of our walls.

In essence, technology at #MHS is a tool; it's not the only one, but it is a powerful one. We hope to prepare our students for college, career, and life--and the responsible use of technology will play a large role in all three.
