At Country Day, we believe the creative, innovative, and intelligent use of technology is critically important. By blending the best elements of traditional teaching and strong student/teacher relationships with the inventive nature of digital learning, our students will be ready for the future.
We thoughtfully integrate technology into the educational experience in ways that deepen learning for our students. Technology in and of itself does not make the educational experience better for our students. Yet, it can be very powerful when well-trained teachers with ongoing professional development blend it into their lesson plans to help further student understanding and deepen connections.
Our academic program provides students and faculty with technology that supports the curriculum. Grade-level appropriate digital tools deepen learning, curated resources in our media centers strengthen research, and technology-specific courses in the Upper School enrich our AP and International Baccalaureate programs.
For the past five years, Upper School educational technologist Donna Campbell-Patrick has been leading her colleagues in using online tools to deliver lessons in new and innovative ways. Her expertise has been even more instrumental and appreciated by her peers since our pivot to a blended learning model.
