Technology in the School System

With the first week of school here in Rabun County nearly complete, everyone should understand by now what an important role technology plays in education.

Mark Beck, the Technology Coordinator for the Rabun County School systems, said that they are working to increase the use of technology in the classroom in Rabun County.

Beck did say that there are limitations to the devices that students can use while in the classroom. As far as the middle and high school are concerned, Beck said that cell phones cannot be used during class periods.

Also, no home owned devices to connect to the school’s network for security reasons.
