Google Apps for Education (GAFE)
MES teachers and students have been using Google Apps for Education since 2014. GAFE is a set of enterprise level cloud based solutions that allows for collaboration through both teaching and learning. Teachers and students alike use Google Apps such as Drive, Docs, Slides and Classroom. Using these tools has helped prepare students for their future and has built online learning communities.
Hour of Code (www.code.org)
As our world changes day by day, we need to prepare our students to change with it at the same pace. They must be able to compete in the future and understand how technology works. Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Their vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. MES is proud to be a school where some teachers are incorporating it into their curriculum. In June of 2016, two summer school classes offered coding for the first time and kids loved it! We hope to continue expanding the use of this awesome website where curriculum resources and tutorials are free!
