Technology has been an integral part of the educational process from the beginning. It has been driven by educational needs to create informed and well-trained students in order to keep up with societal changes and demands.

This 100-year period, from 1845 to 1945, bears witness to incredible technological changes in communications, health and safety, building practices, and information sharing. This is most clearly demonstrated in the schools whose humble beginnings are to be found in small, cramped, poorly-lit and heated buildings. From candles and lamps to electric lights; outhouses to modern plumbing fixtures; quill pens to typewriters and copying machines, the schools and their Boards have evolved and modernized to keep pace with the world around them.
