Welcome to Innovate

Our students are learning in new and innovative ways. Educational technology is always changing, always adapting. As educators, we always rise to the challenge. Though sometimes it can feel a little overwhelming.

Sometimes it’s okay to reach out and ask for some help. We teach our students to be independent and also how to know when it’s time to ask for help.

And, as educators, it’s okay as well.

Are you needing some support in learning about new technology that you would like to integrate into your instruction?

Do you need assistance with Schoology or one of Wood County Schools’ other digital platforms?

Do you have an idea that involves technology but aren’t sure how to get started?

We are here to help.

Reach out and let’s get started.
