Technology

Access to technology is a high priority at Allen School. The Internet is available throughout the school with wireless connectivity in all classrooms. Interactive white boards are revolutionizing presentations. In addition to our computer lab and classroom computers, a mobile cart with 20 MacBook and MacBook Pro laptop computers or Chromebooks can instantly transform a classroom into personalized computer workstations for research, use of virtual manipulatives, or multimedia projects.

ASAP – the Allen School Audiobooks Program – helps students build fluency and comprehension. I-pads and I-pod touches are used in a variety of ways to motivate and reinforce learning.

Technology is imbedded in instruction and learning. LCD projectors, e-beam interactive whiteboards, and document cameras make it easy for teachers to take advantage of video streaming to enhance lessons. Students and teachers alike take advantage of digital cameras, i-movie technology, web page-building applications, and presentation software to share ideas and learning in a dynamic and engaging format.
