The Instructional Technology team identifies leading edge technologies and applications and helps teachers determine which are most suitable for our environment. The team, working with faculty and students, develops best practices for integrating these technologies with curriculum to create authentic, interdisciplinary, engaging, and collaborative learning experiences. We support administrators and teachers as they adapt to their changing roles and responsibilities as 21st century educators. Our efforts support classroom teachers in helping students become judicious digital citizens and finding purpose and success in a rapidly changing and highly competitive globalized society.
Learning and Technology
Trevor Day School provides unique and authentic learning opportunities for its students. The school’s pedagogy is founded on the idea that learning should be inquiry-based, with students at the center of their educational activities. Our approach to educational technology fully supports this fundamental concept. With laptops in hand and wireless access to our network and the digital world beyond the physical boundaries of the school, Trevor students become anytime, anywhere learners. They learn to purposefully collect and analyze information and employ their computer’s vast array of tools to create, communicate, collaborate and demonstrate their growing understanding of the world around them. They express themselves through blogs and wikis, coding, website creation, and dynamic multimedia presentations. They become digital thinkers and life-long learners, ready to rise to the challenges of the 21st century.
The Trevor portal, which is accessible to all members of the school community, serves as the gateway to our digital environment. Everything one needs to know about Trevor is published on the portal. Portal content includes daily announcements, school calendars, student and faculty schedules, academic reports, assignments, the athletics schedule, and even the lunch menu.
