Technology is integrated into the curriculum of all classes with students either coming to the lab, or having a cart of mobile devices coming to the classroom.
In today’s technologically advancing world, an understanding of how computers can be used to facilitate learning in our everyday lives, our homes, schools and businesses is essential for both the teacher and the student.
