WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF TECHNOLOGY FOR TEACHING, EXPLORING, ENGAGING AND COLLABORATING.

Technology

We believe in the power of technology as a valuable educational tool, therefore we’ve integrated technology into our classrooms, using it for learning assessments, differentiating instruction, classroom culture work, and communication when developmentally appropriate. Students use computers for research, writing, long distance collaboration, and exploring a variety of concepts using specialized software. All Elementary classrooms use SMART Boards to extend and enrich classroom learning and assess understanding and the Middle School classrooms, Community Room and Science and Innovation Tower are equipped with Apple TVs. Students in both programs utilize laptops and iPads. In addition, the MSD Library is wireless and has a publishing center for students to produce their work as well as laptops that can be checked out for classroom work.

Library Information Services

Kindergarten through Upper Elementary students have classes in Library Information, which includes how to conduct research and the proper use of technology. Students also engage in creative projects to demonstrate understanding using movie making and web-based presentation tools. Middle School students also take part in electives such as digital imagery and filmmaking.
