Over the last decade, a number of dramatic changes have reshaped the way information is processed and accessed, improving our ability to analyze and visualize problems, changing the ways we communicate, increasing our ability to handle greater complexity, and paving the way we interact globally with diverse cultures and ideas. The technology that has so dramatically changed our world is now creating a new excitement and hunger for change in education. It is clearly the responsibility of today’s educators to prepare students to not only excel in this rapidly changing world, but to ensure that the impact of technology on our world is positive.
Laguna Blanca provides a technologically rich learning environment where teaching and learning are enhanced by using appropriate technology as part of the curriculum. We also teach our students how to be responsible digital citizens. The Technology Department uses the latest in content filtering tools for student Internet use and expects all students to observe the guidelines established in the Responsible Use Policy.
The Technology Department is also responsible for maintaining and upgrading the school's inter-campus network, as well as delivering computer instruction in Grades EK-6. The school community is provided with high speed internet access through a wide area network between the two campuses. Mobile technology is on the rise at Laguna Blanca in all three school divisions. In the Lower School, students enjoy a 1:1 iPad program in fourth grade, as well as iPads carts in Grades EK-3. The Laptops for Learning Program in the Middle School is seamlessly integrated into the Middle School program. Students in Grades 9-12 are encouraged to bring laptops or tablets to school each day and connect through the school's robust Ruckus WiFi network.
