Technology is also changing the classroom. Schools are not just teaching technology, but are using technology to teach. With today’s communications, smaller rural districts can offer programming that in the past was available only in large urban and suburban districts. We would like to think technology will make learning easier, but are not naive enough to know that too comes with its challenges.
Local students have not been back to school for very long and are in the beginning stages of getting back in the swing of things. Students attending Cooperstown Central School started classes today, while those at Milford and Cherry Valley-Springfield central schools started Wednesday.
On a positive note, the academic calendar affords students a chance for a fresh start following the summer break from studies.
