June 08, 2005|by KAREN HANNA

Palm Pilots, laptop computers and electronic "clickers" all are moving into a curriculum that once included only reading, writing and arithmetic.

Lynn Miller, Washington County Public Schools supervisor of instructional technology and library media programs, told the school board at its meeting Tuesday night that teachers in schools throughout the county are using technology to better reach students.

Technology has helped teachers track students' progress and meet the needs of students with special needs, Miller said in his presentation.

"Today's student is a digital native and is therefore very comfortable with emerging technology," Miller said.
