As a result of an Aspen Country Day School education, students will: 
  • develop basic operational skills and understanding of technology
  • use technology as a tool for learning, communicating, and presenting ideas
  • become proficient in research skills including searches, recognizing bias, and understanding copyright laws
  • understand ethical and social issues inherent in the technology age

Technology is used as a tool for learning -- both curating information and expressing knowledge and understanding. In Lower School, students attend a technology class once per week to develop both the practical skills needed to use computers, as well as the foundations of computer science. Keyboarding is introduced in a technology class, and practiced during language arts time. Lower School children use chromebooks and iPads in the classroom for projects and research. There is also a fully equipped technology lab where an entire class can work together on networked desktop computers. In Middle School, we have a one-to-one chromebook program and technology is fully integrated into the school day. Students may also take a variety of technology-based electives.
