Technology at CCDS

  1. 1. Vision The role of technology at Charlotte Country Day School is to support the mission of the school, directly addressing each of the School’s key values. Technology is a vehicle through which diverse information and ideas can be located, evaluated, applied, and shared in both personal and academic pursuits. To that end, technology is integrated into the daily life of the School community through authentic and ethical experiences that promote learning, communication within and beyond the School community, and service opportunities that address social, environmental, and global issues. Our shared goal is to help students and faculty to develop a sense of control over technology while preparing them to work in diverse teams and to be technologically literate as they explore issues, challenges and new directions. We give students and faculty the resources to respond intelligently to evolving technology here at our school and for their years beyond. Technology at Charlotte Country Day School
