A Technology Enabled Journey
Devine, Pamela Albert
Principal, v91 n3 p14, 16-17 Jan-Feb 2012
This article features Point Road School, a pre-K-4 school in New Jersey that enhances student learning by integrating new and emerging technologies into the curriculum. Point Road School's technology story began in 1996 with a grant for a classroom modem so students could email their university literacy buddies. The New Jersey school has moved from a glimmer of a technological vision to a focused movement in which the staff work collaboratively toward a common goal of preparing students to be high performers in the 21st century. The staff are committed to thoughtful and planned use of present and emerging technologies, believing that technology promotes creativity, provides opportunities for real-world learning experiences, stimulates lifelong learning, and enhances students' overall competencies. The school's vision focuses on enabling the students to become skilled, knowledgeable, independent, and self-directed learners who are comfortable with and proficient in using technology in all its forms.
