Technology for Learning

Technology at Westhill

Technology in the classroom is used to engage, support, and further student learning. We believe technology supports our district goals in working towards better collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. It can open doors to new learning experiences where non existed before.

Chromebooks
Chromebooks are devices designed to work in a cloud-based environment such as G Suite for Education (Google apps). G Suite offers a wide variety of applications online that students have anytime, anywhere access to such as: Classroom, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, and much more. Teachers use Classroom to assign activities, offer resources, collect work, and give feedback. Students use Google Drive to take notes, write essays, organize thoughts, analyze spreadsheet data, create presentations, and most of all collaborate with their peers.
