Forget paper and pencils; one Valley school is taking learning into the digital age.
Students at the Shenandoah Valley Governor's School are booting up there computers to complete course work.
From receiving assignments on class web pages, to turning in work digitally and taking online quizzes, these students receive instant feedback.
They can also discuss class work with their peers in online class forums.
It's all so cutting edge that instructor John Matherly was honored by the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council with their "Innovation in Education" award.
"I think it’s a really fantastic way for students to be engaged in mathematics and science in a really technology infused environment," said Matherly.
