At Parker, we believe independent thinking, academic achievement and global perspective are all enhanced through the appropriate use of technology.
The Middle School uses iPads in a variety of ways to engage students in project-based learning, skill development and content review. Students use iPads as digital textbooks, collaborative content creation devices and a portal to the rich multimedia content and vast resources available through the Internet.
Through the iPad, classrooms can become truly global, connecting students and teachers to broad bases of knowledge that exist beyond our classroom walls.
In an increasingly technological world, we believe it is our responsibility to embrace this tool, guide students to discern when technology is the tool of choice and when it is not, and then lead them to apply their strength of character equally to this facet of citizenship.
