The technology goals for GRACE align with the National Education Technology Standards for the Digital-Age Classroom. Our technology initiative dramatically advances student learning and increases opportunities for collaboration and differentiated instruction. Technology tools are used to challenge students in higher-level thinking skills, inspire students to become lifelong learners, and prepare GRACE students for digital citizenship.
GRACE’s vision is to embrace technology in all areas of the school and transform the classroom into a digital learning environment. The goal of the technology initiative, originally named E4, is to EMBRACE technology to better ENGAGE and EMPOWER students to EXCEL as lifelong learners. The initiative enhances the current curriculum and equips, challenges, and inspires students as 21st century learners to impact their world for Christ. The technology initiative aligns with and advances GRACE’s mission, vision, and core values.
As part of the technology initiative, GRACE Christian School uses digital resources to transform and accelerate education through technology for all students in kindergarten through twelfth grades. Launched in August 2011, the GRACE technology initiative provides laptop computers for each student in 5th through 12th grades for school and home use, a classroom-use laptop for each 4th grader, and a SMARTBoard interactive system for each elementary classroom.
