As the Building Tech Support person I am responsible for "everything technology" here at Hoover.
This ranges from keeping the "equipment" running smoothly in all areas, Classrooms, Library, and Offices, to assisting the staff and students with using the hardware and software.
"Hardware" here at Hoover includes: Computers, Lap Tops, Net Books, Printers, Scanners, Cameras, Projectors, Smart Boards, Alpha Smart sets, Palm Pilots, and even the Phones. In recent years we have added 2 netbook carts. This year 2013 - 2014 we have added 2 Laptop Carts consisting of 30 Dell Laptops and soon 2 Ipad carts .
"Educational Software" can include anything from locally installed pieces that correlate with the Harcourt Reading Series, or general math or language skills to Web Based Applications such as Dreambox, Raz Kids and Think Central.
At Hoover technology is naturally integrated into our daily curriculum.
