At Winchester Public Schools, teachers are a critical factor in education. While computers provide a number of benefits and opportunities for students that would not be possible without digital devices, the knowledge and caring guidance of teachers in our strong digital curriculum is what ultimately helps students achieve and succeed.
The role of the educator is evolving. Teachers are a kep component in providing opportunities for students to learn key concepts and discover the tools that they need for learning so that they can grow into life long learners. In the 21st Century teachers are now the facilitators for learning - they engage, lead, inspire, and encourage the students in their classrooms.
It is now more imperative than ever that we teach our children to be responsible digital citizens and our teachers are on the front lines of that education process everyday. School is the perfect time to learn how to safely and securely surf the Internet, decipher fact from fiction in a world of digital content, act responsibly on social networking sites, and efficiently manage a life full of digital interactions.
