Technology in the Classroom
Our approach to technology integration requires using selected computer applications as cognitive tools. We believe that students learn from thinking in meaningful ways, rather than from computers. Students experience integrated technology learning opportunities during their years at Ashbury and develop the skills necessary to use technology to gather and evaluate information, facilitate communication, plan and carry out research, and share what they have learned.
We have a connected learning environment where students, parents, teachers, alumni and community have access to technology and are connected to one another.
Our teachers work together to find an appropriate connection in the curriculum for technology. In addition to laptops, students have access to a wireless LAN network, digital cameras and projectors, digital video editing software, scanners, graphing calculators, Smartboards and science data probe ware. Our teachers encourage students to experiment with technology to enhance their learning, demostrate creativity and develop stronger problem-solving skills.
Good teaching with technology is just good teaching.
Educational Technology Services' mission is to move Ashbury College forward as a leading Canadian independent school through the integration of technology into the learning experience. Its key roles are to provide access, support the users, and stay abreast of emerging technologies.
