Classrooms today use technology to enable teachers and students to communicate more efficiently. The right tools foster more student involvement, promote better learning and help make K-12 schools safer places. WTS can provide these tools. The proliferation of laptop computers and internet use – even among the youngest students, the need for constant access to teachers and faculty, and the inclusion of separate school districts into a centralized communication infrastructure, means that K-12 schools have the communication needs of a university. Through our approach to communications, we address all of these needs putting people and students at its center. Instead of technology defining how people communicate in a role, the role defines the technology used to communicate. Using this approach, communications are tailored to each individual’s role or need, which ensures a communications system that meets the requirements of teachers, staff, students and parents.
With a robust communications system in place, teachers have the right tools necessary to communicate in and out of the classroom to both students and parents. Staff has a way of communicating important school information to everyone efficiently and students benefit from having access to the information they require.
