Technology is very important at LJHS. We are providing support and training for integrating technology into the school's curriculum. Technology has been shown to improve instruction as well as student motivation. Technology is needed in a balanced curriculum to enhance student understanding and motivation. It is imperative that teachers are experts in their content area and proficient using technology tools. This knowledge will enable them to appropriately and effectively integrate technology into the curriculum only when and where it makes sense and will positively affect student learning and understanding.
