The Alcuin School curriculum is deepened with many rich opportunities enhanced by the integration of technology.
Design Technology involves analysis, development, synthesis and evaluation. It incorporates the aim of developing globally minded citizens that will create a better world.
Every student has access to many different devices, forms, software and materials that help their creative process come to fruition.
The entire school is wireless allowing us to reach out to the world from anywhere on campus. All Elementary classrooms are equipped with laptops and every Middle and Upper School student receives a laptop and is connected to programs on and off our campus. Learning is not contained to the classroom.
A recently added Innovation Studio houses 3D printers, a theater for filming and presenting, tablets, laptops, teaming tables for collaboration, wall mounted touch screens, LCD s for presentations and video-conferencing and varied seating accommodations to enable different work modes. Raspberry Pi's, Arduinos and 3D Doodlers are also part of the collection that enable scientific discovery and problem solving.
Tablets, iPads, iPod touches, cameras and 3D printers, are all tools utilized to help create, investigate, research and collaborate.
Students use our video conferencing equipment to make connections from any room in our school and conduct interactive two-way audio/video collaboration. The unit is mobile, contains a LCD panel and can be rolled into any classroom or community space that has power and an internet port. We can visit and confer with new friends around the world and experts in any field on the big screen or small screen. A single class or multiple classes can conference together to enrich life and maximize learning potential.
At Alcuin School, the world is our classroom when you consider the possibilities and potential that integrated technology provides to our students every day.
