Learn the Tools
Microsoft Office, Google Apps, and coding are just a part of what students learn to use in their creation and collaboration projects.
Technology change is not about the tools, it is about people. We learn to make our school, community, and world a better place by using our talents.
Learning our Strengths
We expose students to a wide variety of activities. We want to help them find their strengths. From the YouScience profile to other projects, students have a variety of opportunities for leadership and service.
Tools We Give You to Be Successful
Every student in grades 6-12 receives a PowerSchool username and password. This is linked to your computer userid and password. So, when you change one, you change both!
A Personal Email
Each student from grades 6-12 also has a personal email account ending in westwoodschools.org. Every teacher and other student’s contact information is pre-loaded in your address book. Just type their name and there they are! You can also use this to get student discounts when you purchase technology for education purposes.
A UserId and Server Space
Each student in grades 6-12 receives a computer userid. This ID can be used on any of the school’s computers on campus. Also, each student has a 2GB server drive to store files that you can access anywhere on campus. This is shown as your U: drive in network places.
Print From Your Computer or Mobile Device
The iPad Lab is used by elementary grades to introduce them to technology.
Sign up for an Office Live ID
We also recommend the digital notetaking service One Note. This is a free Microsoft tool that will sync between computers, your mobile phone, and all devices using the Office Live ID. See our IT Director for help.
