Innovation and Integration Lab  In IIL, we learn what it means to be a CyberCitizen and the importance of CyberSafety.  We practice real-life skills, such as word processing, creating spreadsheets, and sharing ideas and knowledge through a variety of digital presentation formats.  We learn to work in teams, using technology to assist in collaboration and communication.  We gain confidence navigating real-world applications, such as Google Apps, Microsoft Office, iLife, and a growing bounty of Web 2.0 tools.  We explore creativity using technology to bring our ideas to life and to enhance the communication of knowledge and understanding.   Most importantly, we have fun while we learn to appreciate the value of technology integration in the 21st Century.
