Middle School Begins 1-to-1 Computing Program

Jen Fulcher Middle School

news 3In an ongoing effort to use the latest technology to enhance the Middle School’s academic program, seventh and eighth graders will begin their year at The Williston Northampton School with a laptop for their own use.

Through the new 1-to-1 computing program, every student will have access to a personalized laptop that they can use throughout the academic day that has the latest software, Internet access, and multimedia capability. While the computers will stay in the Middle School when school is not in session, students will be able to access any files they have created from home. Students can also use the computers to access their Williston email and WillyNet, the school’s internal communication system.

Because every student will have access to a computer, teachers can develop creative lesson plans that more effectively utilize technology. Students will also be taught how to use technology appropriately and efficiently.
