Technology

At Wye River, our teachers, staff and students benefit from the seamless use of technology across the curriculum. We see student outcomes in learning and organization enhanced by the implementation of technology in the following areas:

  • Access to assistive technologies (i.e. speech-to-text, audio books, Photo Booth) which support students with language based learning difficulties

  • Developing organizational strategies through use of google docs and other document management systems

  • Use of online school management software allowing teachers to share daily with students and families - homework, objectives, standards, and grades

  • Creation of audio and visual projects (i.e. podcasts, movie making, presentation graphics)

  • Collaboration through blogging, and positive social media interaction

  • Connection to real-time experts in science and other subjects

  • Engagement and deeper understanding of material due to the interactive and changing nature of technology
