Welcome to 21st Century Technology Education
Living, working and playing in the 21st century requires educators to teach using 21st century skills. Here at Searingtown, technology skills are embedded into the curriculum by a collaboration between teachers, the technology teacher and the librarian.
Students in every grade have access to desktop computers, wireless laptops, chromebooks, iPads and other forms of computer hardware, such as SMART Boards, digital cameras and digital video cameras. In addition, students have access to free and paid web-based tools that break down the walls of the classroom. This provides for a broader audience and endless opportunities to collaborate and learn with the global community.
Using hardware, software and web tools, we introduce, reinforce and extend the content taught in the classrooms. Learning becomes richer and higher order thinking skills are strengthened. The National Educational Techology Standards for Students helps to form the technology curriculum as well as the concept of creating 21st century learners!
