Wolfe County Schools at the Forefront of 21st Century Education

Wolfe County Schools is becoming a regional leader in 21st Century instruction and learning. With the rapid inclusion of technology into our schools education is changing. No longer is instruction and learning bound by pencil and paper methods.  Students can access information from anywhere on the planet, travel to other countries, take virtual live field trips and speak to the guide in famous sites such as the White House, the Tower of London, and Ford’s Theatre, be taught by professors and teachers from colleges and even other schools, gain college credits and learn about fascinating careers offered in larger urban areas all without leaving their schools.  Teachers can watch and learn new and creative teaching methods while being a live participant in a classroom many miles away or even in another state or country.  Technology reduces geographic barriers that once existed for rural counties such as Wolfe.  Thanks to funding from a federal Race to the Top Grant Wolfe County schools are rapidly changing the way instruction is delivered.  Wilma Terrill, District Innovations Coordinator, commented, “The world has become a global society where distance and location are no longer obstacles. Technology affords students opportunities that did not exist even a few years ago. With the advances we are seeing Wolfe County students can have experiences and learn in ways never thought possible before. There are literally no boundaries.  With technology as an instructional leader if you can imagine it you can achieve it with your students”.    Wolfe County Schools will continue to emphasize working with our students to enable them to succeed in an ever changing global society.
