Canvas: K-12 Learning Management System
All Trinity Areas School District students in grades K-12 use Canvas as their learning management system. Learning management systems are software-based platforms that provide frameworks and tools for facilitating learning both inside and outside the classroom.
With Canvas, everything is kept simple, easy, and in one place-including assessments, grading, standards, messaging, and even learning data. Canvas was chosen as our Learning Management System by a team of administrators and teachers because of its wide range of easy-to-use tools for teachers, students, and parents. Canvas allows our 1:1 technology to be used more efficiently and effectively by our teachers and students.

Trinity High School Esports Arena
Esports (electronic sports), or competitive video gaming, is trending at colleges and universities worldwide. Trinity Area High School is one of the first schools in the region to incorporate this popular program into the curriculum. While the organization of our Esports competitive gaming team is certainly exciting for students who love to game, we are particularly eager to share our rigorous curriculum, which is grounded in essential Twenty-First Century Skills.
Trinity High School offers an Introduction to Esports course to familiarize students with industry game developers’ roles, responsibilities, and influences. Specifically, students learn the structure of a wide-scale gaming organization, and work to build a brand as they consider the history and culture of the industry and central tenets of the entertainment experience. Using the language of the industry, they explore the historic development of popular Esports, and contemplate how the cultural and economic implications have impacted modern industry. As students engage in play experiences, they will gain deeper insight into the Esports ecosystem from the perspectives of career gamers, designers, economists, advertisers, and coaches. Essentially, through their interdisciplinary studies and practical application of content and skills, students lead, strategize, communicate, create, inspire, and solve practical problems in realistic contexts.
Students thoroughly enjoy spending time learning and gaming in the Hillers Esports Arena, located on the first floor of Trinity Area High School and designed based upon recommendations of gamers and industry employers. This state-of-the-art classroom is equipped with the latest computers, gaming software, lighting, cameras, video game cards, and broadcasting software for students who want an authentic, hands-on learning experience.
To practice and compete after school, students use enhanced gaming computers, mice, monitors, and keyboards as they interact with fellow gamers from around the world. Students who wish to host and broadcast live Esports events can capture commentary in the specialized gaming area where the action happens, and then output in a 4K stream on YouTube and Twitch. Simultaneously, presenters, shoutcasters, and spectators can watch the action unfold in person via mounted monitors that allow for clear viewing.
Among the most interesting aspects of Trinity Area’s Esports program is how students who engage might extend their learning and opportunities well beyond high school. Since graduates of the program will have gained valuable, practical experience and developed their critical thinking skills, they may be prepared to pursue careers with competitive salaries, or earn scholarships and continue their studies. Yes, parents, students can actually earn scholarships for playing video games! Please email Trinity’s Esports coach, Mr. White, who is actively looking for members to join the Hiller Gamers team.

Used across grade levels as part of the science and library curriculum, the iSandBox is an innovative learning tool that combines augmented reality with a traditional sand table. This system projects images of various topographical maps, contour lines, watersheds, etc., onto the sand while an embedded depth sensor captures a 3D height map of the surface of the sand. As students move the sand, the image responds and adjusts to the changes in the depth of the sand.
Trinity has partnered with the Aldrin Family Foundation to provide students in Grades 4-8 with integrated, problems-based learning experiences. The Aldrin Family Foundation is a non-profit organization that strives to ignite a love of STEM in students through the use of space-based educational tools, curriculum, scholarships, and programs that drive curiosity and engagement in this dynamic new era of space exploration.
Each of the elementary school libraries house a NoRilla Table, an artificial intelligence enhanced earthquake table outfitted with a camera, touchscreen, large display and an intelligent agent. As students build and create on the earthquake table, NoRilla (a virtual gorilla) interacts with participants, taking them through different challenges and asking questions about why towers did or didn't fall to help them make scientific discoveries.
