• Wilson School District is now offering online resources that harmonize traditional teaching and an exciting hands-on approach to student-centered learning. The students will be active and social participants in their learning by creating their own connections and content through the online course initiative. The Virtual Academy has numerous tools to support the student’s efforts ranging from forums, chats, blogs, email and wikis for collaboration and help, to web based activities and online quizzes for immediate feedback.

    Please view the short videos below to get an overview of the tools used by the Wilson School District to meet our students needs to learn how to be literate in an ever increasing technology driven society.


    Google Apps for Education - Wilson is leveraging Google's tremendous, no cost efforts to support education. Google Apps for Education Edition is a free suite of hosted email and collaborative web applications.
