Country Day School has integrated technology into the curriculum to enhance learning and prepare students technologically for the changing demands of the world. Teachers use the best tolls available to be more productive, communicate effectively and to inspire innovation. Students and teachers use these electronic resources to enhance their understanding and knowledge of topics studied in the classroom and encountered in the world. To support the learning of our students, Country Day is equipped with SMART Board and document cameras in the kindergarten through fifth grade classrooms. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade participate in a 1:! iPad program.
Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum in meaningful ways and is used to engage students as collaborators, designers, performers and scientists. Students are able to demonstrate their knowledge through green-screen and stop-action movies, video editing, robotics, coding and computer science activities, 3D-printing and digital design, digital citizenship and wellness applications, and techology-influenced passion projects.
Shady Side Academy is fortunate to have a technology integration specialist on staff who works collaboratively with Country Day's teachers to enhance technology innovation and the education of globally competitive, future-ready learners.
