Collaborative learning is essential and we strive to cultivate an environment infused with technology for our staff and student population that integrates seamlessly into the curriculum.

Over the past three years, our entire faculty and students in the fifth through eighth grades, have adopted Google Apps for Education. At lower grades, students are accessing Apple iPads, blogging and have integrated the use of available technology each and every day. In addition, there has been a concerted effort by our administration to provide learning opportunities to our staff along with integrating exciting new hardware technologies into daily, learning activities. Needless to say, it is an exciting time to be involved in technology education.

Below are a handful of links relating to technology that I hope you find useful. I will continue to update and add more information on a frequent basis.

If you have questions or have ideas that I should include on this resources page, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email at lcallahan@bfccps.org.
