Technology education at Gaenslen not only exposes students to computer software programs and online research skills, but also equips them with resources to further their knowledge in core subject areas. Students access technology that enables them to take advantage of resources to create multimedia presentations, hone their academic skills and research new topics.
Learners have endless resources at their fingertips. All computers are Internet-ready and feature online resources that supplement regular classroom activities. While Gaenslen students are given the freedom to explore the Internet, they are also expected to be responsible Web surfers.
Online safety is a crucial element of technological education. The staff educates students to protect themselves by visiting safe websites. By using the sites recommended on the MPS Students’ Toolbox, you can be assured your child is in a safe surfing zone! Students can explore these educational sites at the school or at home. Our school librarian is ready and willing to help instruct students, staff or parents on the use of the Students’ Toolbox!
