Dedicated Chromebook carts in grades 2-4 have expanded technology integration and collaboration. Students at Hilltop acquire the essential information technology skills needed in order to grow and develop into lifelong learners, global digital citizens and empowered innovators of the 21st century through Technology classes. In the middle school, we are 1:1 Chromebooks for all students. We have expanded Google Classroom as a learning management system to simplify creating, distributing, collaborating and sharing feedback with students in real-time. Our District supports and our students are exposed to the use of advanced technologies such as Sphero robots, LEGO ev3 and Google AR/VR devices, 3D printers and a Shop Bot CNC Machine.
A vital component of our technology programs is the development of a digital wellness initiative that incorporates digital citizenship, digital etiquette and digital safety.
