Technology with Purpose
In 2019-2020, the Foundation funded a school-wide classroom technology refresh. This included the purchase of 254 iPads, apps, pop up voice pods, keyboards, audio equipment, and lots of cases and screen protectors! IPads have been demonstrated to be a great supplemental tool in the classroom. From math apps that offer small group differentiation to turning research projects into commercials and videos, they offer a fun way to deepen our children's engagement with the curriculum while preparing them for the real world (aka middle school). We also realize that there are two sides to every coin. To help our community more easily navigate the pitfalls of technology we co-hosted Dr. Patti Agatston speaking about "Parenting in the Digital Age". Want to learn more?
