Wadena-Deer Creek High School science teacher Kelly Shrode has been approved for a half-time position as Wadena-Deer Creek's technology integration specialist. The district recently received a $200,000 technology grant which requires that a TIS be hired. Shrode will assist other teachers and work with new programming to improve the technology skills of WDC students. WDC superintendent Virginia Dahlstrom sees a great need for an emphasis on technology, she said. "Technology is changing fast and teaching through technology is changing," Dalhstrom observed.
What do kids really know about computers and when do they know it? Kids growing up in the Information Age have access to answers almost instantly if they choose to use resources like the Internet. Encyclopedias and textbooks also provide these answers but computers make information gathering more convenient. Cheryl Kellen teaches first grade at Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary and she has a pretty good handle on kids and their computer savvy. Kellen was a media director at WDC for a number of years and worked closely with kids and computers.
