Technology at Key
重点学校一直在教三亿体育APP像科学家一样思考, technologists, engineers, artists, and mathematicians in an interdisciplinary environment since 1958—long before terms like STEM and STEAM existed. In each course, Key’s curriculum is designed to ask its students to analyze, question and construct meaning from information gathered.
骨干教师认为知识应该被建构, not delivered, and that real rigor comes from a deep understanding of the complexity of concepts and problems, 从所涵盖的内容来看并非如此. To that end, 技术并没有被视为一门独特的学科, 而是一种三亿体育APP应该能够利用的工具.
Outside of the core academic curriculum enhanced through technology integration, Key also offers its students myriad other technologically focused activities and learning opportunities.
在Key的课程中，技术是无缝集成的. The choice to incorporate technology in classroom endeavors is purposeful and utilized only when teachers see value added. The School views technology as a tool students can use to solve problems, 不是作为一个独特的课程提供.
Students are taught the skills they need to be successful 21st-century digital citizens through projects embedded within the core curriculum.
Thoughtful technology integration occurs as Key faculty work with the School's two Technology Integrators in support of their curricular goals. Just as technology provides students with multiple means to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of material studied, it also offers teachers multiple ways to represent information and break down learning barriers.
