Student Life

Technology

As an international learning community, technology at Léman engages students to become confident, independent, and critical thinkers, and empowers teachers to personalize instruction. Our Educational Technology Coordinator supports faculty and students as they purposefully and thoughtfully integrate technology into the daily learning experience.

From PreK 3 through Grade 1, Léman provides shared iPads for each classroom. A dedicated early childhood WonderLab space provides access to science, mathematics, coding, and engineering materials to inspire exploration, innovation, planning, problem solving, and critical thinking – the building blocks of the future. Starting in Grade 2, Léman offers a 1:1 iPad program and shared laptops available for checkout. In Grades 9-12 we offer a "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) program to accommodate students' work and learning style preferences; classes also have access to shared iPads.

Classrooms utilize interactive technology including projection systems, Apple TVs, iPads, and 3D printers. After school opportunities are offered for students to practice and explore a variety of digital tools and design technologies.

We believe that technology:

• Is an essential part of a student's life at Léman.
• Should be integrated throughout the standards-based curriculum.
• Supports students' paths to digital responsibility and global citizenship in the 21st century.
• Empowers teachers to personalize instruction.
• Enables learning “anytime, anyplace, and at any pace” as our students become the innovators of tomorrow.

We have adopted the International Society for Technology in Education Standards and the IB Computer Science Guidelines that guide our practice and goals for learning at Léman. For further information about the division-specific technology curriculum, please see our Early Childhood, Lower School, and Upper School Curriculum Guides.

Our students will become:

• Empowered Learners who take an active role in using technology to set and achieve their learning goals.
• Model Digital Citizens who recognize the rights, responsibilities, and opportunities of living and learning in an interconnected, digital world in ways that are safe, legal, and ethical.
• Constructors of Knowledge who use a variety of digital tools and resources to build knowledge, produce creative artifacts, and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others.
• Innovative Designers who use a variety of technologies to create new, useful, or imaginative solutions to problems.
• Computational Thinkers who develop strategies for understanding, testing, and solving problems.
• Creative Communicators who express themselves creatively for a variety of purposes using the technological tools that are appropriate to their goals.
• Global Collaborators who use digital tools to broaden their perspectives and enrich their learning by collaborating with others, locally and globally.
