The Meadows Library and Technology Program
The Meadows School has adopted an integrated library and technology curriculum throughout all four divisions in six key categories:
- Creativity and Innovation
- Communication and Collaboration
- Research and Information Fluency
- Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making
- Digital Citizenship
- Technology Operations Concepts
Educational technology allows students to explore beyond the classroom as they experiment with the latest programs, devices, and online resources.
All students are equipped with the technology tools needed to succeed. In addition to providing SMART Boards in every classroom, the School also maintains a 1:1 iPad Program for students in grades PreK – 1, a 1:1 Laptop Program for students in grades 2 – 5, and a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program for students in grades 6 – 12.
The technology applications and programs used during class instruction are designed to prepare students for the types of technology they will encounter at higher levels. The School uses Google Apps for Education to provide students with the same collaboration tools used at the collegiate level, and all students in grades 6 – 12 are provided with a school email address to allow easy communication with classmates and instructors.
