Lower School Technology
Our primary goal is to engage students. We are very mindful of the growing amount of technology that children have access to and the need to balance screen-based learning time with a variety of other engaging learning activities. Our Lower School teachers carefully integrate technology into classroom lessons when it aids in providing greater meaning for our students. Purposeful technology is only one of many tools in their classroom toolkits.
Our technology curriculum includes both device-specific and device-agnostic activities so our students learn how to use a variety of types of technology for a variety of purposes. Our goal is to teach the mindset needed to learn with technology rather than simply how to operate a specific program or device. Students in grades K-5 use iPads, desktop and laptop computers, and Chromebooks for direct technology instruction and to enhance learning across disciplines.
