As you visit this blog throughout the upcoming school expect to find examples of how technology is being used to enhance learning here at Blackland Prairie.
Research shows that integrating technology with the curriculum increases student interest, prepares a 21st century workforce and allows students to explore beyond the textbook, just to share a few benefits. (See: http://edutopia.org/technology-integration)
In Texas, the Technology Application (TA) TEKS were revised last year (See: http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter126/index.html) and are being integrated into the curriculum beginning in kindergarten!
Check in often to see the 21st century learning going on here at Blackland Prairie!
