At Episcopal, we recognize that technology should serve as a means to further understanding. We strive to use the latest advances in hardware and software to aid learning and instruction school-wide. As society continues to become more connected, we are dedicated to equipping our students with the resources they need to control their digital footprint, create original content, and contribute to the advancement of human knowledge.
Students in Lower School regularly attend computer classes integrated into their daily schedules. Keyboarding, word-processing, multimedia authoring, research skills, Internet safety, file management, visual literacy, and basic troubleshooting are core skills integral to our K-5 curriculum. Each classroom is equipped with dedicated PCs and each teacher has access to the use of an iPad cart from the library.
In 2013 Episcopal piloted our first 1-1 iPad program in the 6th grade. Upon successful completion, the middle school has moved to a 1-1 iPad program grades 6-8. Students use various apps to create and submit classwork. Middle school teachers have all been trained in the use of the iPad in the classroom and continue to expand their knowledge of mobile devices as a resource for teaching.
In Upper School, technology integration is present in all academic disciplines. Our students regularly use technology to create documentaries, write music, draw, interact with their teachers and peers, communicate with prospective colleges, research topics, understand other cultures. . . the list is endless. We stand ready to help students explore and discover the technology that best fits their learning pattern as they transition into college.
