Technology: Nissitissit Middle School Technology Program
Opened in 2002, Nissitissit Middle School was built with technology in mind! We have two full computer labs that are complemented by another full lab in our Media Center. Two mobile wireless carts can be used anywhere in the building. Every classroom has a teacher computer and connectivity for up to four additional computers.
Interactive whiteboard technology abounds at Nissitissit! Many of our classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards. Our teachers are highly trained in the use of this equipment, and as new technology emerges, they receive training. All classrooms are equipped with televisions and DVD players.
All students develop extensive keyboarding skills. Both students and teachers are trained in the use of real-life software and programs – Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), Open Office.org, Google Apps, and Moodle. NMS constantly strives to keep abreast of new technologies, providing training for all teachers through professional development workshops as well as in-house training.
