THE MISSION OF the Technology Department is twofold:
|First, to teach the students, faculty, staff, and community to use
the extraordinary range of tools available to them to improve learning,
increase efficiency, enhance creativity, and develop the technical
fluency required in the twenty first century. Second, to provide and support state of the art hardware,
software, and infrastructure to allow all of us to realize the goals
set forth in the first statement.
In all three divisions we strive to integrate technology use and
instruction into the daily lessons across the curriculum. Professional
development and classroom support are provided to empower teachers to
teach effectively with technology. Technical experimentation and
exploration are celebrated as evidenced by the wide variety of projects
underway to incorporate technology use.
Technology specific courses are taught in the Middle and Upper
divisions to foster technical skills and understanding. Most of these
are taught with a degree of collaboration with other subject teachers
to reinforce the relevance of the skills covered. Full descriptions of
these courses may be found in the divisional Course of Study documents.
