Polytechnic School: At the Forefront of Technological Evolution
Technology has certainly changed over the years! David Kressen, a Polytechnic School teacher from 1958-1990 at the forefront of the technological evolution, believed programming knowledge was integral to understanding a computer. In an Oak Tree Times article, he said “that knowledge of programming was an essential part of learning to use a computer. I think the problem-solving skills a student acquires through learning to write a program are invaluable.” Poly continues to foster students’ intellectual curiosity by promoting technological skills across all grade levels with devices to support their education.
