“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. Students that develop technological fluency 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 Parents Web online gradebook. All grades are posted in real-time for students and parents to see.
