"Digital literacy, the ability to use technology to navigate, evaluate, and create information." - Commoncraft
"At the heart of technology integration, technology offers opportunities to be more actively involved in the learning experience." - Vanessa Vega, Edutopia Research Analyst
With the help of a building based technology integration specialist, McCarthy-Towne teachers directly integrate technology into classroom learning and instruction through the use of iPads, Chrome Books, MacBooks and more. Students learn basic technology skills to support learning in the 21st century. Teachers work collaboratively with our PDB technology integration specialist, Megan Bowhers, to create lesson plans directly relating to the grade level curriculum that incorporates student use of different technologies.
