INFORMATION COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT)

 


Gray Academy students develop competencies in using and applying a broad range of technologies to support their learning experience. These skills allow them to be knowledgeable, self-directed, and curious learners, comfortable with and proficient in using technology resources in all their forms. Our goal is to support our students as productive global citizens who are able to successfully navigate their futures.

All grades use ICT in ways that are meaningful to their grade-level curriculum. For example, a unit on space might include research using the internet (eg. GALE Databases, Refseek, etc.), note-taking using Word or Inspiration, and a final project using Inspiration, PowerPoint, or any web-based tools and apps such as Prezi or Tagxedo. 

Through ICT, students gain the following specific skills:

  1. Hand-eye coordination & proper mouse use (JK to Grade 2)
  2. Keyboarding (JK to Grade 3) 
  3. Managing & organizing a personal account on school servers (Grades 3 to 12) 
  4. Creating & managing online accounts responsibly (Grades 4 to 12)
  5. Evaluating websites for validity (Grades 4 to 12)
  6. Choosing proper applications for projects, research, etc. (Grades 4 to 12)
For more specific information about the topics covered, programs used, and pedagogy behind our ICT program, please see our grade-specific curricular information on our General and Judaic Studies pages.
