It’s a tall order, but as an organization that has successfully managed a school-wide 1x1 laptop program for over 10 years, we’re up to the challenge.
Our IT department supports equitable access for all students and faculty to the hardware and software necessary to prepare students for an ever-changing digital, global economy. With a plethora of technology tools at our disposal, we also ensure and support student data privacy and maintain security systems for the entire Worcester Academy community.
Despite the omnipresence of technology on the Hilltop, it actually plays only a supporting role in each classroom. We see technology as a tool that supports teaching and learning and prepares our students to answer tough questions and solve complex problems. Our classrooms support the philosophy of active, purposeful use of technology. Our students don’t just consume what’s on a screen. They create, design, and author their own learning.
Worcester Academy students are not just prepared to use technology because it’s available, but rather, learn to use the best resource available to solve the right problems.
