Mrs. Waters Gamificed Classroom Featured on on NCCAT Blog

Elaine Waters, a World History teacher at McDowell High School, recently took part in a 3DGamelab environment, a online program hosted by NCCAT.  3D GameLab is a gamified content creation and student tracking platform where teachers can design and share quests and badges to create personalized learning for their students. Students “level up” through the curriculum, choose quests they want to play, and earn experience points, badges, and awards.


You can read about the expeience on the NCCAT Blog.

MY Health-e-Schools


MY Health-e-Schools is improving access to healthcare for students in McDowell County through telemedicine. The technology is based on high-definition videoconferencing using specially equipped stethoscopes and cameras so that a centrally located health care provider can examine students at multiple schools without traveling. We collaborate with primary care physicians to provide many services, including addressing acute issues such as the common ear ache or stomach ache, chronic disease management, medication management, well-child check-ups, sports physicals, adolescent medicine consultations, and telepsychology / telebehavioral health.​

Recently, the telemedicine program was featured on WLOS.
