Our technology program is incorporated into all core subjects with our staff Instructional Technologist who works closely with faculty on a variety of projects to help co-teach and model technology to the 4th thru 8th students. This instructional approach to learning technology increases the amount of individualized assistance while working on authentic activities that are relevant and support grade level curriculum.
Students in grades 6-7-8 are introduced to a cloud-based curriculum and use digital notebooks in core subjects on their 1:1 personal tablet. Each student has their own “virtual backpack,” with an MS Office 365 cloud-based account. Students can access their accounts on up to five devices allowing them to access textbooks, notes, and assignments anytime, anywhere and on any device. Students learn how to work in a shared group within the Office apps, while collaborating and accessing homework in their e-note books. In addition to harnessing technology as a tool, students will also step into graphic design with the amazing Adobe Creative Cloud suite of programs for students, mastering the art of photo and video editing and unlocking the mysteries behind coding with an introduction to computer science.
