By Jim Wallace - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Darton College leaders say it's vital for higher education to have the latest technology.
That's why the college has spent more than a million dollars to renovate the old administration building to make it the college's new technology building.
It houses the school's computer lab with 70 high speed computers for students and other new equipment that Darton instructors and students helped develop.
College officials say some students respond better to lessons on computers.
"They may not be able to learn by reading a textbook, but boy if you initiate the subject matter and the subject titles using technology, they learn," said Darton College President Dr. Peter Sireno.
The new building houses Darton's Technology Services Division and the college's Online Education Division as well as computer labs and classrooms.
