At KUA this begins with SMART Boards in every classroom, the KUA Laptop Requirement (see below)
to ensure that every student is equipped with the appropriate device and support for their academic computing needs, and the adoption of digital textbooks across a number of our course offerings, which allows us to further embrace digital content and enhancements in and out of the classroom. Utilizing cutting-edge technology gives faculty and students the freedom to be creative and move beyond the traditional walls and constraints of “old school” education. We strive to make our classrooms more interactive, and empower students to play an active role in their education. We see the impact of this every day—whether it’s guiding students as they use Twitter to follow up-to-the-minute, first-person accounts of a revolution unfolding half a world away, or watching them win the Massachusetts FIRST Tech Challenge Championships as part of our STEM
(science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) Program.
Kimball Union Academy's classrooms are all equipped with SMART Boards and outstanding audio/visual capabilities. These technologies are integrated into the curriculum in a variety of ways to emphasize 21st Century skills and learning outcomes. Whether through collaborative problem-solving, global interconnectivity, access to databases, or refining information literacy, our objective is to advance learning with these technological tools.
