Technology and 1:1 Program
Technology at U乐国际 seeks to both provide the community with technology resources, as well as teach the community the technology skills necessary for success. To accomplish the former, both campuses have fast and reliable WiFi networks, as well as programs in place to provide all 教师, 工作人员, 和学生 with the hardware and software they need. As for teaching technology skills, U乐国际 believes that people best cultivate these skills within the context of their work. 因此, U乐国际's technology program provides access and support for a variety of technologies and expects that students, 教师, and 工作人员 will use the best tool for the task. The Technology Team has 7 full-time employees in grades K-12 to help support this mission.
Student Technology Committee
In the 上学校, students may apply to be part of the Student Technology Committee (STC). STC students are involved in many aspects of school life, offering helpdesk support for 教师, 工作人员, 和学生, as well as being a part of a variety of technology initiatives. STC students help with 教师 training, act as beta testers for potential new hardware and software purchases, help update the website, create various media for distribution through 社会 media (including an occasional drone flight!),更.
