Promethean Interactive Whiteboards and Digital Wireless Projection provide powerful teaching and learning tools, where teachers are empowered and students become active participants.
At our Lower School, every classroom is equipped with a Promethean Interactive Whiteboard, document camera and student computer. Our Middle and Upper School classroom have a mix of media solutions including Promethean Boards and flat screen TVs with digital wireless projection. Both campuses also come equipped with TruTouch Interactive Touch Displays. These classroom technology resources encourage our teachers to design lessons with group collaboration, and provide opportunities for our students to interact with various technologies in the classroom.
Our Lower School students learn the advantages and pitfalls of email and internet in our internet safety lessons. They are instructed in the use of the Microsoft Office Suite through project based activities and are taught keyboarding skills with a variety of on-line programs.
Student technology learning continues with our Middle School technology program. Students follow a rich, project-based curriculum built around the Microsoft Office suite of products. This includes learning to use technology as a tool for research, classwork, presentations, collaboration, and communication.
iPad and Laptop CARTS
Brook Hill’s iPad, Laptop & Microsoft Surface Tablet carts provide our Lower, Middle, and Upper School teachers with a great way to integrate technology not only into their lessons, but also into their classrooms. Carts are reserved and supported by our Director of Educational Technology and Innovation who works directly with teachers to ensure success in the classroom.
Canvas is a powerful online Learning Management System. Our teachers utilize Canvas to deliver online content and resources, helping to prepare our students for the online learning rich environments found in college education today.
