Seacoast feels that the best way to integrate technology is through an interactive classroom. Utilizing the Mimio technology and iPads, an interactive classroom takes advantage of the tools that provide students with a world of resources. It facilitates instruction that accommodates students and varied learning styles and includes timely frequent assessments of progress.
It provides many opportunities for students to acquire what has been called “21st-century skills,” including the ability to think critically, analyzes information, comprehends new ideas, communicates, collaborates and makes the kinds of decision necessary in today’s society.
The rewards of this environment include improved student performance, an enriched context for learning, more efficient classroom teachers, an extension of the learning environment beyond the school walls, better connections between schools and families and between schools and the global communities, and students who have the skills to succeed in the 21st-century workplace.
