Technology is woven seamlessly into school life, expanding educational horizons across our fully networked campus. On any given day, in classrooms the libraries or our technology lab, students are writing and revising papers on wireless laptops or desktop workstations, scanning photos, researching through our Intranet or the Web, constructing and analyzing data charts and graphs, designing newsletters, and creating digital images and web sites.
The Kenny-Grace Technology Center, containing two classrooms for instruction and free time study, reflects our commitment to offer students state-of-the-art technological tools, including the latest software programs, writable DVDs, Internet/Intranet access, graphics, digital sound, and digital photography.
Our campus is completely networked with hardwire and wireless access in all buildings. We use a high speed connection to connect us to the outside world. There is a blocking system in place on campus called Barracuda to prevent inappropriate content from the internet to the classrooms. All faculty have a greenvaleschool.org email account. We have electronic smartboards in 27 classrooms and labs and three laptop carts used on campus. Students have access to their personal folders from home so work continues beyond the school day.
Formal instruction begins in kindergarten with an introduction to workstations, children's software, and drawing tools, and culminates in the ninth grade when students work to create the campus yearbook.
Staff members of the Kenny-Grace Technology Center look forward to the new school year and to serving the needs of the Green Vale community. Their goal is always to maintain and improve our electronic services so that they are at the forefront of educational technology.
