A Way to Learn, A Way of Life
Children are growing up in a world where technology is part of everything they do. It’s part of how they learn, play, and relate. At DCD we look beyond technology as learning support and recognize its role in developing life skills. That holistic view drives how much we focus on technology at any given point in a student’s DCD experience.
Technology is an integral part of our curriculum in each grade. It supports and augments learning, fosters innovative thinking, and becomes a focal point when students are developing skills in digital literacy, computational thinking, and digital citizenship.
We start our youngest students off by helping to build the beginnings of their digital footprints. Then we foster citizenship and respect for themselves and others while inspiring them to develop their individual voices, collaborate with one another and communicate ideas responsibly.
To support the curriculum, we equip children with the following digital resources:
- Pre-K through grade 3 have one to one access to iPads
- Grades four and five students each have a Chromebook
- Middle school students each get a laptop, which they keep after graduation
