Hello Guest. Welcome to the IT Department Web site.
At Hewlett-Woodmere Public Schools we believe it is our responsibility to provide our students access to the most advanced technological equipment available today.
Throughout our schools, from Franklin Early Childhood Center to George W. Hewlett High School, technology is utilized to educate our students each and every day. Technology helps bring lessons to life, provides interactive learning experiences, engages disinterested learners and allows for on the spot assessment.
At George W. Hewlett High School, a one-to-one program is currently underway which provides students with tablet personal computers. These students can use their tablets in their daily classes as well as at home. The tablets allow the students to take more accurate notes, conduct research on the Internet and most importantly - to participate in interactive lessons using specialized software.
Throughout all of the schools in the district, interactive whiteboards are making the grade. Unlike typical chalk boards, whiteboards are truly interactive. They allow the teacher and students to become fully immersed in the lesson by providing an interactive and engaging experience for learners. Interactive whiteboards can play videos, expand photographs and maps, zoom in on details and much, much more, all with the tap of the finger.
