Technology

Academic technology education at Oakwood is designed to support classroom learning and student achievement through high-quality integration with the classroom curriculum and pedagogy. As early as kindergarten, students learn basic digital skills and then use more advanced features to create multimedia presentations and digital portfolios. The application of higher levels of digital skills allows students to learn in ways that were not previously possible within the traditional classroom to venture outside those walls and into the world. The incorporation of digital programs also supports the social-emotional well-being of students as it facilitates the development of strong classroom relationships through the additional connections made through interactive online learning management systems.
 
During weekly technology classes, students learn digital skills and use that knowledge through the lens of problem-solving. Various units include digital literacy (finding, evaluating, creating, and communicating information with devices); design thinking (re-defining real-world problems and solutions and determining alternative strategies); coding/programming (learning the basics of computer punctuality, as well as using the information the create their own programs); digital citizenship (learning responsibilities as media creators and consumers).
