Technology and Iola ISD
See how technology is developing in our school.
Technology plays an everyday role in our lives, as students, educators, and parents. Our goal is to ensure students use technology to be better prepared for their future beyond their educational career at Iola ISD.
At Iola ISD, we encourage the use of technology in the classroom so students can continually be engaged in new activities in each content area, while learning safe navigation procedures in a constructive environment.
