Technology in the Classroom
At Oakstone Academy, we believe that individuals are empowered by their independent use of information technologies and that they are united by opportunities to share resources and communicate within their communities. It is essential that we commit to preparing students to work in an evolving, information-centered, global community by assisting them in gaining the necessary tools of technology. Students and staff must be competent in using these tools to obtain information, communicate, and solve problems.
Along with the multiple opportunities for student technology use, the challenging academic curriculum at Oakstone Academy is enhanced by the use of advanced teaching tools including specially designed interactive white board technology and an award-winning broadcast-quality plug and play video server.
Oakstone classrooms are equipped with Promethean Activboard interactive whiteboard technology. These large display boards allow teachers to create, customize and integrate text, images, quizzes and tests, web, video and audio content to spur student interest while accommodating different learning abilities.
Teachers at Oakstone have the advantage of using this exciting video-on-demand server including more than 2,000 preloaded titles that are fully segmented from the most prestigious educational video producers in the world including: National Geographic, A&E, PBS and BBC Worldwide to name a few.
Computer and iPad Carts
All classrooms above the preschool level have access to computers and/or iPads stored in Computer and iPad carts throughout our buildings. Computers are an essential learning tool in any 20th century classroom and iPads have shown to be invaluable in their ability to differential instruction and help all students reach their greatest potential. We are committed to keeping the most up-to-date learning tools available to our students.
