Susan Klodnicki, Media Specialist
Technology plays such an important part of education today. Having the resources available to all students in all curricular areas is vital for student success. Every student at Dodgen, in every subject area and every grade level, may partake in the usage of the various devices generously provided by our Foundation. The laptop carts, in particular, are essential for implementing lessons utilizing Office 365.
Sheri Dennard, 8th grade Math teacher
The chrome books allow all students access to the technology that we are using in class. If a students doesn’t have the resources for a device or is not allowed to bring a device to school, the student is able to participate. Thanks to the foundation for allowing this type of access to all students.
Kari Viland, 7th grade LA teacher
We love to use the iPads and chrome books in our classroom. We appreciate the ease of bringing technology into the classroom and are thankful that we don’t always have to book a lab in order to have access to technology. From research to assessments, we are better able to help our students access, practice, and understand the curriculum.
