Technology in the Classroom
At The Roig Academy, our mission is to inspire success, risk-taking, and growth in our students. As we endeavor to be leaders in the use of technology, we encourage creative and innovative learning. Today’s students are already leaders in technology. They are encouraged to take the technology they use in their daily lives and infuse it into their daily classroom experience. Research tells us that if we reflect this in their learning experiences, we will increase engagement which leads to improved student success and learning outcomes.
Our Classroom Technology
Interactive Whiteboard Displays, along with Apple TV’s, can be found in every classroom, allowing for interactive content to engage our 21st Century Learners. Due to COVID-19 all Roig Academy classrooms are hybrid classrooms. Powered by Swivl Robots, our home learners are deeply integrated into in-person classes, and our in-person students are able to pivot from being in-person to home learning if necessary.
Technology for Students
In the spring of 2012, we began our vision for 21st Century teaching and learning, with iPad and Apple TV. Today it flourishes with the deployment of device 1:1 programs with iPad in our lower school and Chromebooks in our upper school.
After many years of researching and piloting devices, such as the Amazon Kindle, Microsoft Surface, Chromebook, and iPad in our classrooms, we have chosen devices that we feel best to meet our students’ needs. Our Lower School students are exposed to the G Suite by Google and Seesaw. In the Upper School, we have implemented a 1:1 Program with the Google Chromebook. This device allows for our students to collaborate with each other, fostering a 21st-century learner and a digitally responsible citizen. These devices are strictly monitored and content filtered, for both in-school and out of school use.
