The technology program aims to enrich the core curriculum by providing students with meaningful ways to create, communicate, collaborate, and consume critically as they explore texts, learn about themselves, and connect with others.
In the Nursery School, students have opportunities to
explore digital photography and videography, to conduct online research with
teacher support, to dictate stories, and to program simple robots called Bee
In the Lower School, students illustrate and communicate
original ideas and stories using digital tools and media resources; create
digital presentations, movies, animations, videogames, and other products to
demonstrate understanding in content areas; demonstrate the safe and
cooperative use of technology; use digital tools to solve problems; and find
and evaluate information using digital resources.
Upper School students build upon the skills they have
developed in Nursery School and Lower School. Students create three-dimensional
models, code mobile apps, evaluate digital resources to determine the
credibility of the author and publisher and the timeliness and accuracy of the
content, use collaborative electronic authoring tools to explore ideas from
multiple perspectives, and create limited, positive digital footprints while
acting as good digital citizens.
Performance expectations for technology are based on “Profiles of
Technology Literate Students” created by the ISTE National Educational
Technology Standards for Students.
