Frederica Academy is committed to developing technology skills across our academic program that will prepare our students to succeed in college and adult life. We have developed three FA Student Technology Standards, modeled after the “ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Standards for Students.”
A Knight is able to think outside the box when problem solving. They are ready to apply digital resources to draw connections across different contexts to produce the best solution.
A Knight understands the responsibilities of being part of an online world. They act ethically and in a positive manner when using technology.
A Knight takes control of achievements in the classroom. They are able to use digital tools to produce his own unique learning outcomes.
Our goal with these standards is to support and enhance the curriculum. We want our students to become conscientious and agile users of technology who will thrive in a 21st century global community.
To support our technology mission, Frederica Academy provides a robust infrastructure and a variety of resources for student and faculty use of technology, including: 1:1 Chromebook program for grades 5-12, G Suite for Education, iMacs, iPads, TI-Nspire Handheld Calculators, and Media Production tools.
The Makerspace is a project-based, interdisciplinary room designed for interactive education for second grade students and above. Using the highest levels of technology with iPads and Mac Pros for video editing, modular robotics, Lego robotics, Lego Storystarter, Spheros, Osmos, modular robotics, and lego robotics, MakeyMakeys, Snap Circuits, LilyPad sewable electronics, GoPro cameras, HTC Live Virtual Reality and 3D printers, the workspace is aimed to help students plan, design, invent and create using a wide variety of learning styles.
