In an age of iPads, Blackberries and iPhones (and other new technology emerging by the second, it seems), teachers need to incorporate today’s technology into their lessons in order for students to connect to those lessons. And in an age when more is expected of the students (and teachers) than ever, the ability to be efficient in the classroom and quickly and accurately assess students on their knowledge is more important than ever. Technology is the tool that allows this to happen. Technology in the classroom isn’t something new at any local school district, including Harbor Beach Community Schools. This year, though, Harbor Beach administrators and teachers are making even more of a concerted effort to incorporate the latest technology into everyday teaching and assessing, with the help of a technology consultant who also is a familiar face. Steve Hill, who taught for 31 years (most of that time at Harbor Beach), retired last school year and has returned to help teachers get familiar with new technology now available to them in their classrooms. He comes in four to five days a week, or as needed.
