• Viking R Welcome to the Shanksville-Stonycreek School District Technology Department.
     
    The aim of this department is to better enhance the student educational experience by offering various and diverse technology resources to supplement traditional educational practices in the classroom.  It is the hope of the district that students will graduate having experience in using many of the software and/or programs, such as Microsoft, Adobe, Google, and Apple products that they will encounter in real-world endeavors.
     
    The district also strives to offer students opportunities to participate in activities they help develop 21st century skills, such as distance learning, collaboration, creativity, design, and evaluation in an online or authentic environment.
