Technological Literacy is the Currency in Today's Classroom

Learning is social and highly integrated, and Calvary Christian School's students are members of communities of learners instructed, through challenge-based learning, to utilize technology to create project ideas, establish goals, manage tasks, organize time, cooperate with group members, contribute as group members, and accomplish shared goals. Calvary's students have opportunities to participate in this type of learning every day, through their integrated classroom curriculum supported by Calvary's dedicated Technology and Academic Resource Specialists.

Calvary's Technology and Academic Resource Specialists partner with each classroom teacher to support the educational goals of the core curriculum, develop purposeful learning experiences, and advance student learning by providing technology tools and digital media support for the students. Examples of integrated learning utilizing Calvary's diverse technology include virtual field trips, video conferencing, inquiry-based learning projects, global connections, and digital research.

Some of the technology tools that keep us curious, creative and innovative:

  • 1:1 Google Chromebooks for students in 3rd through 8th Grade

  • 3D Design & Printing
  • Construction & Modeling with sustainable materials
  • Lego Robotics Mindstorms
  • Mini Drones & Robots

Engineering, Design & Computer Science

Students learn and apply the computer science/engineering design process to all project challenges. They learn the universal application to these steps in addressing problems across all subjects. Students embrace the learn-by-doing educational model, with most projects having an essential hands-on designing and programming element required as a culminating artifact of their work.  

Multimedia Classroom

The Academic Resource Center’s Multimedia Classroom is equipped to host virtual field trips and video conferences for all grade levels. The multimedia opportunities in which the students participate are aligned with the core curriculum in each grade level and designed to enhance and deepen the students’ learning. Virtual field trips and video conferences bring resources from the finest universities, science centers, museums, and national parks.
