The ULS teachers and leadership team believe that at the core of technology in education is a model in which technology’s purpose is to enhance the learning experience rather than be the experience.
University Lake School students and teachers are active participants in their own learning, choosing the best tools to accomplish their goals. Technology is used to develop strategies that allow learners to reflect on the process and make choices that will lead to improved learning outcomes. Using a balanced variety of devices and media and by embracing various roles, students employ their creative energy in exploring new skills that may stimulate unforeseen interests.
With a variety of resources available, University Lake School students use appropriate digital tools in constructing and engaging in meaningful learning experiences.
