Arma Dei Academy takes a measured approach to the usage of technology in the classroom and believe that students need skills more foundational than those acquired by technology alone.
Technology is one of many tools and we are careful in the tools we use as they have the ability to make and shape us.
The Washington Post cited a recent study that found, “the more children use computers at school, the more their reading abilities seem to suffer.”
Technology is strong in handling data and locating, accessing, relaying, processing, and handling certain types of communication. Technology is not good for encouraging contemplation and reflection, socialization, or identifying and valuing truth, goodness and beauty – all things Arma Dei desires to cultivate in our students.
