“We are currently preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies that haven’t yet been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.” Karl Fisch, educator
Technology plays a vital role in teaching our students through a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) based curriculum and is important to daily communications with parents. Technology is used to provide real-time reporting to our parents and teaching in every level of the school. Our technology provides access to cutting edge web-based programs and information as they become available.
Technology is used by the teachers to communicate with parents such as using computers and cameras to send out daily Discovery Reports
Have interactive SMART boards in their classrooms that teachers use to offer lessons that enhance all subjects, but they are also for student use as well (not just teacher presentation).
Uses a mobile iPad and laptop lab that has 13 units allowing each student in a class to use the technology at the same time. These resources are shared among the three classrooms as needed while the older grades use them daily for research, math curriculum, and presentation of learning. With Foundations commitment to STEM-based curriculums, technology will continue to play an important role in the school.
