Our vision is to use classroom technology to engage students in asking questions and choosing tools to facilitate real world problem-solving.
Vickery Creek Middle School is fortunate to offer students a 21st century classroom that includes Chromebooks and a teacher's laptop computer that seamlessly works with the collaborative classroom components of an interactive Clear Touch panel. In addition, teachers and students have access to digital cameras, video cameras, and scanners to engage all learners. Through teacher-designed quality work, our students are being prepared for life with a large variety of instructional technology tools.
Clear Touch panels facilitate active learning, not just passive reception of information. In situations where teachers use a whole-class approach, students are more engaged in the lesson when a panel is used. Our students are consistently engaged in the learning process through authentic problem-solving and design. The wealth of technological resources at Vickery Creek helps transport our students beyond the experiences that were possible in a traditional classroom.
