The Fletcher School is a 1:1 institution with school-issued iPads and MacBooks for all students. This learning environment was created to remain relevant to the students we serve. This involves incorporating a student centered, constructivist, project-based learning model that leverages 21st century productivity tools, digital content and curriculum, and learning management systems. We have implemented a blended learning model that combines the best of online learning with the best of face-to-face instruction. Learning is more personalized and, paradoxically, more collaborative, as well. Great teachers do this anyway, but with technology, it has been taken to the next level.
Our vision for the technology program at Fletcher is to ENHANCE instruction through the use of technology in the classroom. We would never replace the tried and true techniques of Fletcher’s program such as multisensory instruction, diagnostic-prescriptive teaching, and use of the Orton-Gillingham approach. We offer our students the very best opportunity to learn based on their individual learning styles and believe that the use of Apple technology can enhance, supplement, and support the teacher’s instruction in ways that will engage our students and allow them new avenues to demonstrate their skills.
