Technology

Technology is an important aid in our school as it is in our lives. The children use computers and technology as tools for experimentation, exploration, research and presentation. Along with books and classroom dialog, technology helps create the stimulating, relevant, and challenging learning environment that is Monarch Learning Academy. 

 

Technology supports and reinforces the academics taught in the classroom: word processors for writing and editing, desktop publishing for creating newsletters, Internet for research, and software that offers a new way to make certain aspects of Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Social Studies and Multiculturalism into a discovery-based learning project.
