The Parkside School actively integrates multi-media technology into our educational program where it provides both teachers and students with tools to facilitate instruction, learning and exploration.
Every teaching room is equipped with iPads, Apple TVs and Smart Boards, which are used daily for lessons. Our Computer Lab is fully equipped with computers, peripherals and video equipment to enable full class participation. Technology classes meet once per week during which students begin developing basic skills to navigate technology and with competency start to do research and work on projects related to what they are learning. All students are encouraged to use video and audio tools for selected assignments, storytelling and collaborative projects. Computers may be used for email, coding and problem solving applications. Access to the Internet provides students a portal into a world of educational information and a diversity of the experiences beyond the walls of Parkside. As students get older, particular attention is paid to connecting with the content being taught in Social Studies and Science.
As students use technology tools to help them better understand everything from real world cultural diversity to abstract concepts such as space & time, they learn best practices together in a climate of socializing and shared discovery.
