Technology

 

Computer labStudents need to learn how technology can help them organize and understand the flood of information accessible today. They need to learn how to communicate in the multiple media presently available.

Current research indicates that the use of technology impacts learning in a positive way when it is integrated into the various subject areas and not used in isolation.

We desire that students:

  • Demonstrate proficiency in using technology.
  • Understand ethical issues related to the use of technology.
  • Use technology tools to enhance learning.
  • Use a variety of media to communicate information and ideas.
  • Use technology as a research tool.
  • Use technology as a problem- solving tool.
