Technology is not a subject, it's an environment
Technology is embedded throughout our curriculum at Echo Horizon School. We immerse our students in a technology rich environment where they utilize a variety of tools that support their learning. This unique and powerful perspective exemplifies why the work of our students and teachers is featured in Apple's Education Resources, why we have been recognized as both an Apple Distinguished School and a SMART Showcase School, and why our program is visited by educators from around the world.
Students from Pre-K to 6th grade have access to iPads, laptops, and desktops both in the classroom and in our Technology Center. Pre-K-2nd graders utilize both iPads and laptops in their classrooms. Students in 3rd and 4th grade enjoy 1:1 access to laptops in the classroom and every 5th and 6th grader at Echo Horizon School is provided a laptop computer to use at school and at home. Whether they are making an iMovie to present research findings, taking scientific measurements with digital probes, sharing information globally with videoconferencing, or reporting on school events with podcasts, our students learn by doing every day.
