Our school is committed to educating all students to be productive workers, responsible citizens, and life-long learners, enabling them to be globally competitive and prepare for life in the 21st century.
As a division leader in digital technology in classroom instruction, SPS has made great strides in transforming our classrooms into 21st Century learning environments. Emphasis is being placed on critical thinking and problem solving, communication and collaboration, and creativity and innovation. These skills are keys to unlocking a lifetime of learning and creative work. We want out students to have what it takes to become a self-reliant lifelong learner.
Our technology plan supports our need to increase student's information literacy skills and be able to use technology as a tool to research, organize, evaluate and communicate information. Providing students easy access to the Internet in the classrooms and the ability to use handheld devices is an important part of instruction today. We encourage teachers to implement inquiry and collaborative learning projects as well as participate in the division's professional development opportunities that can enhance their use of digital technologies and their technology skills.
