Technology

Technology is a critical tool that has equipped modern man with opportunities for communication, information flow and learning that are revolutionary and comparable to the invention of writing and the printing press. Technology in the school setting is to be a tool for learning, fully integrated into the classroom academic learning process versus a separate class. Classroom educators will lead the implementation of technology in their classroom, providing technology specific training in the skill base needed to use technology while planning how it is implemented into specific learning activities. Teachers will adopt an age appropriate sequence of skill acquisition including keyboarding, use of common applications and safe use. Students will taught that technology is a tool of human activity with a power that can either strengthen or weaken the human spirit. Students will learn how with discipline and wisdom technology can serve man in his care of the human community and stewardship of the earth.
