Technology resources are a major component of any forward-thinking school, and The Steward School is no exception. With the launch of 1:1 program for all students in the fall of 2014, every Steward student has access to a device during the school year: in grades JK-8, iPads loaded with apps are available to every student, and Upper School students are responsible for bringing their own devices every day. The heart of our mission is to prepare our students for college and for life, so supporting technology in the classroom will help set the foundation for using devices wisely.
We are especially pleased to offer a 1:1 program because it provides equal access to technology for all students, and the results of their digital collaborations with other students and teachers are astounding. Not only are we able to minimize our carbon footprint, but in the process, we are increasing the personalization of learning, helping develop research skills, and providing a variety of choices for student assessment.
