Tools that Transform Learning

From iPads and laptops to apps and Apple TVs, technology significantly impacts the way today's students learn.
Barstow is a leader in adopting new technologies and integrating them into our curriculum so they enrich the learning experience, rather than define it. Our faculty participates in ongoing professional development and shares innovative tools and programs with students so they can access and apply every available resource.
