“Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.” – Bill Gates
At FBRA, we view technology as a tool to facilitate the following three areas:
Each FBRA student is issued a Chromebook which is dedicated for their schoolwork during the school day or to assist with their work at home. The students use Google Apps through our school domain for the majority of web-based assignments which may include documents, presentations, videos, or spreadsheets. Google Apps is increasingly being used in higher education, government, and the workplace. Students that develop technological fluency with this platform will be set-up for success in whatever future endeavor they choose.
Students also develop keyboarding proficiency through the program EduTyping. In addition, all students and parents have access to their RenWeb online gradebook. All grades are posted in real-time for students and parents to see.
