In order to prepare students for the 21st century skills needed to thrive, MCA’s technology program is designed to engage them in learning so they reach their God-given potential.
Classroom Technology Integration
With the dramatic shifts sweeping through technology, today’s students engage in learning at new levels with the world literally at their fingertips. These learners are highly relational and demand quick access to new knowledge; therefore, MCA teachers introduce various tools to their students that will empower them in their learning as well as develop their critical thinking skills. Students understand that technology cannot think for them, but it can expand their way of thinking. MCA teachers utilize digital projectors, document cameras, and streaming videos to engage students visually and aurally. They assess student understanding with leading diagnostic programs in reading. They help students connect ideas with concept-mapping software such as Inspiration. They encourage students to express their learning through video presentations, word clouds, and digital art.
