Technology for 21st Century Learners
McNair has made some substantial leaps in tech capabilities over the last few years. Our staff and students enjoy the opportunities for utilizing these newest technologies as creative and collaborative outlets for learning.
Our PTA worked tirelessly for multiple years with the goal of outfitting each classroom with Interactive Whiteboards (Promethean Boards). We are pleased to say that this goal was reached in 2015. Every regular classroom and also the music room and library/media center utilize the boards.
Prior to the start of the 2015-2016 school year, the network infrastructure was updated, including wifi routers in each classroom and main area of the school. This was a key improvement to support the roll-out of 1 to 1 chromebook access for students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. Currently students in these grades are accessing google apps for education through these devices.
In the 2020-2021 school year, to meet the demands of all virtual learning, staff are training hard to aquire the skills necessary to deliver the high quality instruction McNair has always been known for. In addition, the district has expanded 1 to 1 Chromebook devices PreK-5.
