Tools that Transform Learning

From iPads and laptops to SMART boards and Swivls, technology has significantly impacted the way students learn during the last twenty years. Barstow is a leader in adopting new technologies. Our technology team trains faculty to use new devices and programs in innovative ways — and supports students’ ability to access content, resources and materials effectively.
Barstow was one of the first schools in the region to launch a 1:1 technology in 2003, to build a team of technology integration specialists and to weave these tools into the curriculum so they enrich the learning experience, rather than define it.

The right technology tools and support make this level of flexibility possible.
