Technology Use

 

Why Technology at WCS?

 
Wayside Christian School recognizes that the training of students in the appropriate and responsible use of technology is an important part of “providing the foundation that cultivates, transforms, and prepares students to be Christian leaders who impact their world for Christ.” Our 7th – 12th grade students are provided with the opportunity to use school owned electronic devices (Chromebook) to research, communicate, collaborate, and develop 21st century skills that will prepare them for their futures.
 
The use of these resources and tools is a privilege and is meant to provide each student access to educational materials to help them succeed. The students are able to access Google Apps for Education, education web-based tools, as well as many other useful sites. The supplied device is an educational tool that is strictly intended for educational purposes only and is filtered through the filtering software that has been chosen by the WCS administration. Students are not allowed to have access to personal electronic devices (cell phones, tablets, computers, etc.) throughout the school day.
