Tech Help

Hamilton Southeastern classrooms employ many tools and resources to foster deep learning and the development of 21st-century skills. Among these are digital tools and resources. 

When digital devices are used in HSE classrooms, they serve as learning and creation tools (Jonassen, D., Carr, C., & Yeah, H. 1998).  HSE is a 1:1 school corporation; that is, each student in grades K-12 uses a personal digital device as a learning tool.
