Technology at BCES

Technology is used in many ways at Bryan County Elementary School. Assessment is used to drive instruction at our school and technology is integral to the assessment process. Technology is used to target areas that need improvement, provide immediate feedback to classroom teachers, for remediation, acceleration, and to track mastery of the curriculum. Technology is also used to meet the different learning styles of students at our school and to make the curriculum interactive and exciting. Parent communication has also greatly increased as a result of technology use at Bryan County Elementary School.
