Instruction and academic achievement are enhanced through the appropriate use of technology.
Lower School students have access to classroom iPads that are used to enrich and support the delivery and learning of core curriculum. Laptops are also available for more advanced technology explorations, including basic robotics and programming.
The Lower School is actively engaged in integrating computers with the regular instructional program. iPads are used in learning centers in grades JK-2, often extending learning, providing reinforcement and practice for concepts taught, and giving teachers a wonderful tool for differentiating learning.
In Grades 3-5, the iPads often travel with the students to their foreign language, music, science, design and even physical education classes. Students often compose readiing reflections and create original multi-media presentations, stop-motion video, interviews and design projects on the iPads. In science, students extend their understanding of the scientific process by capturing digital information in graphs and spreadsheets.
