All of us are immersed in a rapidly-expanding environment of information and ever-changing technological tools. As educators, we are committed to helping students thrive in today’s information-rich culture by using technology effectively. Simply being “tech-savvy” isn’t enough – students need to develop as capable and responsible users, information seekers, problem solvers, and decision makers.
At Morristown-Beard School, we are discovering that constructing curriculum in the Digital Age is a complex process that both demands and elicits creativity. From our formal digital courses to the Humanities curriculum, the challenge and focus is to harness these incredibly powerful tools within the fabric of our academic day.
As we move forward with the latest technology in the classroom, we remain committed to the values that have defined us for more than a century. We are vigilant in maintaining the position we have articulated in our Strategic Plan: to “act purposively to identify, investigate and implement technologies to advance the School’s mission and curricular goals, recognizing that technology is a pedagogical means and not an end in itself.”
