Integration of Technology
Our technology offerings cover a wide range of technical disciplines including multimedia communications, computer programming, robotics, and computer literacy. The integration of technology across the curriculum provides relevance and the reinforcement of skills for students as they use technology to perform authentic tasks. Technology supported activities such as the 5th grade Water World wiki and the comprehensive 8th grade project require students to utilize technology for identifying both local and global problems, conducting valid research, and collaborating with others in order to propose solutions to these problems. Strategically planned field trips such as the Middle School trip to Space Camp are designed to expand upon students’ academic knowledge and often expose them to sophisticated, real-life technology applications. Extracurricular activities such as the Robotics Club, Audiovisual Club and Photography Club foster students’ enthusiasm for creative applications of technology while extending learning outside of the classroom.
In order to maintain an optimal learning environment for our digital students, we provide a variety of tools and services throughout the campus.
