Technology has become an integral part of the BPS curriculum. Students utilize technology daily in classrooms and in their school media center for a variety of tasks: exploring answers to questions, collaborating with experts and peers, analyzing and representing data, and authoring documents and presentations. In addition, classroom teachers use technology tools to help students better learn and understand subject-area content through the use of engaging multimedia resources.
Closing the Learning Gap
Assistive technology (AT) includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices. AT promotes independence by enabling students to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to, or had great difficulty accomplishing, by providing tools or different methods to assist them.
