TECHNOLOGY and Social Development
Technology - We believe the infusion of the arts with
technology will support and enhance the needs of our students.
Within the arts community, we collaborate with locally-based artists
and institutions to provide professional development to staff
within the areas of; dance/movement, music, visual arts, theater,
writing, and computers. We promote opportunities to the Miami-Dade
community to experience local artists and performers in various
venues, as well as striving to bring artists and performers to
our school for special events. The artistic and technological
opportunities support students so they become engaged in learning
at high levels in a rich learning environment.
– Academic success is measurable with data. Tests, grades
on papers and projects, report cards, yearly test data, entrance
exams to high schools, colleges and universities all provide good
data regarding a student’s academic status. Yet, success
exceeds numbers on reports. It is necessary to teach and allow
time for children to practice social development skills as they
develop within their social environment. Whether it is through
play, class projects, literature discussions, or through using
technology, students will learn these Life Skills while attending
our school. Examples of social development topics are listed below.
