Comments
The computers in our school were purchased in 2007 or earlier. We are getting fiber optics in the school in November 2013.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
These computers can be used not only in the English department, but also in social studies. We are working toward cross-curricular projects, and having access to computers in the classroom will make that transition easier. Students can also use Edmodo to begin building and organizing their high school portfolios.
