Integrated Technology

Technology is increasingly integrated into our classrooms, projects and activities to enhance both teaching and learning. Where it was once a separate subject, it is now becoming part of how our students learn every subject.

Our teachers design projects and activities that require students to employ technology to research, evaluate, create and present information. Our students learn to use applications and technologies by using them to explore other subjects. In this way, learning becomes less about the technology itself and more about its role in the learning process.

Students learn to implement five major technologies: Cloud Technology, Tablet and Mobile Technology, Social Technology and Desktop Technology (Windows and Mac).
