The focus for technology integration in the Lower School is to teach students how to use a variety of creation tools that allow them to build a toolbox of valuable resources. Throughout their time, these tools inspire students to show their understanding of the knowledge and skills they have learned in creative and meaningful ways.
In the Lower School, iPad carts are permanent fixtures in the hallways for faculty to use for classroom activities. Students use iPads extensively in the classroom as a note-taking tool. Each student receives a Google account with access to Google Drive and other Google applications.
In Lower School classrooms, the app Explain Everything
is used to further engage students with new material. Described as a ‘digital whiteboard,’ the app encourages students to collaborate with each other on assignments and easily create presentations for projects.
