Poly’s Upper School Students Learn the Value of Slow Technology Skills
Poly students in the Upper School recently learned the value of slow technology skills by experimenting with typewriters! The machines were brought to campus by curator Edward Pollard (thanks to Technology Integration Specialist Bev Goldin!) who taught students typing skills and mindful strategies by working on the machines. Students wrote letters, poems, and creative works in the shade of the library. “Sometimes we often find ourselves moving between high tech and low tech depending on the task at hand. Learning the value of slow technology can come in handy if the situation calls for it and realize how valuable these drills and assignments would be in the long run.”
