Technology

Technology is an important component of modern learning. As computer technology begins to infiltrate nearly all spheres of a person’s life an understanding of how that technology works, and how it impacts learning is crucial. Children starting school today begin their formal education never knowing a time when powerful computers were never so much as an arm’s length away. It is important to foster a student’s relationship with technology in much the same way we teach children to respect and understand all the powerful agents in one’s life. Indeed, the students of today will relate to information in ways very much different from all preceding generation. They relate to their world differently than previous generations and think in ways fundamentally different than previous generations. Our goal is to teach students how to use technology, but also what kind of impact that technology has on them and their life.
