Scott Basen, the C-Net instructor, has been moved as well. He is now in the “A” Building.
Basen said, “I believe the area we are in now allows us to be more focused on what we are doing and emulates a computer repair shop or a small PC lab. This movement allowed us to set up the lab to fit the field compared to 40 years ago by adding computers. The previous room was built around electronics, where as the new room is built around computers to better suit the students of the C-Net program at A-Tech.”
Grouping the academic areas together has also been well-received by the teachers at A-Tech.
“At times, we would have to walk across campus to meet with other teachers in our content area,” said Mary Beckwith, an A-Tech government instructor. “It was never a problem for scheduled meetings, but for quick conversations about curriculum and current events issues that we discuss in the classroom, being together has been to our advantage.”
