The goal of the middle school technology program at All Saints’ is to equip students with skills appropriate to their age level and teach them to make effective use of those skills so that they are able to compete in a world increasingly integrated with and dependent on technology. Integrating technology projects with other subjects allows them to apply what they’ve learned and encourages artistic self expression. They learn to find and prioritize information, synthesize new knowledge, and present it confidently and creatively.
The building blocks of technology are word processing, using search engines, and creating data presentations. Students have considerable flexibility in adapting these to their individual learning style, a practice which maximizes their opportunities to be successful.
The curriculum includes instruction on using the internet safely and students are expected to use technology appropriately, responsibly, and for school purposes only. Resources include computer labs, laptop carts, interactive white board technology, and Destiny Research Center.
