Blending technology, teaching

“Ready, set, go!”

First Grade Students in Kimberly Harris’ class raise to easel to start breaking down their vocabulary words. Harris reminds the other students watching to pay attention because the students working might have to “phone a friend.”

While Harris works with this group of students, the rest of her students are at their desks, or different areas in the room, working on papers with the help of computers or computer tablets.

No, they are not doing “busy work” or playing games. They are also learning and moving forward where they need to be on their level.

This is called Blended Learning. While the concept of combining teaching and technology may not be new, the way Blended Learning puts the two together has allowed students to make choices, learn at their own pace and move ahead if they have the ability.

Architect firm gives presentation about OHS Buildings

The Crockett County CCSD School Board heard a presentation from an architect firm for the Ozona High School building project during their March 20 regular meeting.

Representatives from WRA Architects, of Dallas, showed the board what they have done to combine old with new when it comes to renovating school buildings.

The company has done work for Mesquite ISD, Plano ISD, Brock ISD, Crandall ISD, Clyde CISD and others mainly in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

The representatives said many of the projects they have done have combined both old and historical structures with new renovations.

“I don’t believe our architecture today can compete with the quality and character of these buildings,” said Keith Anderson, of WRA Architects, about the OHS Buildings. “My goal would be to compliment them and let them shine.”
