iPad Program and Learning Commons
In order to better meet the 21st Century learning needs of our young students, Baldwin has launched two new technology initiatives in our Lower School. In grades Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd grade students have 1 to 1 access to ipads. Ipads are a wonderful tool for young children. Ipads provide children with experiences in several modalities: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. They accommodate a wide range of learning styles. They are intuitive, engaging and easy to use allowing young children opportunities to create and to find different ways of sharing what they're learning.
Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will have a bright new learning space this Fall. Equipped with a Smartboard, a cart of Macbook Air laptops, a document camera, whiteboards, and flexible seating for large and small group work, the Learning Commons will facilitate inquiry, collaboration, creativity, and communication. The Learning Commons which is located across the hall from the Lower School Library serves as an extended space for learning the effective use of ideas and information.
Multimedia Studio and Computer Lab
Our mission is to enhance our growing global learning perspective by offering our learning community unique ways to connect with the world and learn through other people’s experiences through technology. Cutting edge technology will offer unique and expanded options for students to get the most out of their education and for faculty to have a more creative control on how they want their students to comprehend, analyze and deploy their knowledge in their lives.
Dual platform computers, including 3 brand new iMacs and 22 Windows based machines, will give people access to create and refine media projects, have video conferences, work on video and audio production, photography, graphics production, editing, printing and more.
