If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow
- John Dewey
Technology is an integral part of instruction at Lead Academy. Students use and access technology in the following ways:
- Each student in grades five through eight is issued a Google Chromebook as part of our 1:1 technology initiative for our middle grades students.
- An additional 40 tablets are available for classroom checkout.
- Students create final products ranging from video blogs to podcasts to Prezi presentations. These tasks are integrated into the classroom curriculum and prepare our middle schoolers for challenging high school curricula and life beyond the classroom.
- Many classrooms take advantage of Flipping, which allows students to access lectures and videos prior to addressing the subject in class. This gives everyone more opportunity to interact with the content together and participate in hands-on learning tasks.
