Purpose

Technology at Fremont School is designed to enhance and enrich the core curriculum. We provide our students with the tools to collect, analyze, and clearly communicate information to produce their own product using skills learned form previous years. The effective use of technology in every classroom and in the technology lab will generate a school-wide focus to increase students’ opportunities for success. Planning and implementation of technology is an ongoing process.

Why Integrate Technology into the Curriculum?: The Reasons Are Many

"Technology is ubiquitous, touching almost every part of our lives, our communities, our homes... Properly used, technology will help students acquire the skills they need to survive in a complex, highly technological knowledge-based economy. Integrating technology into classroom instruction means more than teaching basic computer skills and software programs... Effective tech integration must happen across the curriculum in ways that research shows deepen and enhance the learning process. In particular, it must support four key components of learning: active engagement, participation in groups, frequent interaction and feedback, and connection to real-world experts. Effective technology integration is achieved when the use of technology is routine and transparent and when technology supports curricular goals... Learning through projects while equipped with technology tools allows students to be intellectually challenged while providing them with a realistic snapshot of what the modern office looks like. Through projects, students acquire and refine their analysis and problem-solving skills as they work individually and in teams to find, process, and synthesize information they've found online... The myriad resources of the online world also provide each classroom with more interesting, diverse, and current learning materials. The Web connects students to experts in the real world and provides numerous opportunities for expressing understanding through images, sound, and text..." .....By Edutopia  (Edutopia Team)
