High School Technology
The Mobile Christian School Technology Department holds responsibility for all of the computers, LCD projectors, phones, printers, copiers and public address systems for the school. As well, we maintain a network that contains miles of computer cable and fiber optic lines.
As of the start of the 15-16 school year, we had 180 computers, 40 LCD projectors (37 ceiling mounted), 3 computer labs and complete network wifi coverage in every classroom on campus. Our client workstations run either Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 and we use Office 2010 or 2013 in all of our labs.
In the summer of 2010, 35 interactive whiteboards were installed in all major classrooms. In October 2010 three more whiteboards were order for MCS. These boards were funded by the PTFA. And training was made available to all staff members.
It is great to walk down the hall and see technology at work. Many of our teachers use the interactive boards every period of every school day.
