Technology Abounds at Exeter-Milligan
By Phyllis Severson, Technology Director

The Exeter-Milligan 7-12 Students traded in their MacBook Pros for MacBook Airs in a one to one refresh this year. The new computers are lighter and faster than the older models and are equipped with the latest operating system and applications. They also have a much longer battery life, which allows the students to use them fully throughout the school day.

Exeter-Milligan has become fully immersed in Google as a Google School. The students use Google Drive to create and store documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Teachers have added their own Google Sites to the school website which can be found at

In the elementary school the students have been given iPads to use. Every student in Kindergarten through 6th grade has access to his or her own iPad. These are equipped with the latest applications and operating system. Teachers are able to engage students throughout the day with various applications.  Many times, a student can be heard saying, “Hey, I think we have an app for that.”
