Curriculum - Technology

At PDS, technology is seamlessly integrated into the classroom to support and enhance student learning.


With technology, students are given a choice in how they demonstrate and apply their knowledge. As educators we ask, “Can technology enhance the learning in some way?” If it can’t, then technology would just be used for technology’s sake. But if the learning can take on more relevance and meaning with technology and lead to real-world tasks, then various forms of technology are available at the moment so that students can build a deeper understanding of content. That is seamless integration.

In 2001, we were among the first elementary schools in the nation to launch a 1:1 laptop program. Today, every boy in senior kindergarten through sixth grade has a laptop. Nine carts of iPads are also available for student use. Laptops, iPads, and iPods - in centers and individually - are available for the younger students. During a boy’s years at PDS, a boy will come to understand what it means to be a citizen in a digital world. Topics such as internet safety, digital footprints, creative credit, and copyright infringement are just a few of the lessons discussed with boys through grade-level seminars.
