Supporting 21st Century Learning
All students will be creators and purveyors of content, connected to a vast global audience and support network, collaborative problem-solvers and designers of innovative ideas, and apply critical-thinking in all aspects of life using technology as a critical and embedded tool. Technology is utilized as a support mechanism to help students learn and connect with instruction. Maker-spaces, 3D printing, robotics, and other digital-age platforms are helping our students learn to create and design solutions to problems in hands-on and authentic ways. We strive toward consistency with technology use and to incorporate technology into the everyday learning environment.
We believe technology supports our students in applying their learning in meaningful and relevant ways. It helps our classrooms and learning environments become more personalized and individualized.
AOS #94 is deeply committed to authentic and relevant learning spaces and environments for all students, and in the 21st century this means effectively integrating technology throughout our schools, classrooms, and lives in education. For more information on how AOS #94 is working to make these ideas realities, see our Comprehensive Technology Plan.
The MSAD #46 School Community is currently redesigning our Comprehensive Technology Plan to be aligned with our vision for learning, principles of student-centered learning, and best practices for digital-age learners. You can find our work-in-progress here: MSAD #46 District Technology Plan (2017-2021). If you are interested in being a member of the team that is developing this plan, please contact either Paul Shaw or Matt Drewette-Card.
AOS #94 continues to be a part of the MLTI program through the Maine Department of Education, providing technological support, professional development, and state-of-the-art devices into the hands of our students.
