At Oakridge, we believe technology should be seamlessly woven into the learning process, enhancing curriculum across disciplines and grade levels, and providing students with the skills to use technology in ways that will benefit them now and in the future.
Technology today supports and facilitates project-based and collaborative learning as well as interdisciplinary projects. It involves information and media literacy, digital communication, and global interdependence.
Contact our help desk, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have a connection or technology-related issue.
Technology makes learning possible anytime and anywhere. Learn about the BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) program here. As a component of an integrated educational environment, laptops let Hockaday students focus on concepts, active learning and collaboration while enhancing the girls' interaction with their teachers. Supporting this program, are a variety of online tools that are carefully vetted by the school, and monitored by teachers.
Technology skills serve students far beyond their time at Oakridge. They develop critical thinking abilities to analyze and manage information; learn to study and organize effectively; and build confidence in their capacity to adapt to change.Oakridge students are positioned for successful, discerning use of evolving technology as lifelong learners and as members of the 21st century's “digital citizenry.”
