Instructional Technology at CESJDS


Technology is woven into the everyday life of our school. We use it to create and collaborate, to find and manage information, to communicate our ideas, and to analyze problems and develop solutions. In partnership with families, we work to make our students responsible and ethical users of the tools of our contemporary digital life, users for whom adapting to new, cutting edge technologies is second nature.

CESJDS strives to meet three goals as a technology-forward, independent school:

  • the understanding of technology as a tool by which digitally-sophisticated students and faculty become collaborative and critical thinkers who pursue experiential learning in a project-based and independent environment like that in which we will live and work in the future;
  • the seamless integration of technology into the culture of the school, so that we produce graduates for whom adapting to and using the most cutting edge technologies is second nature;
  • the training of our students to be responsible and ethical users of the technology tools of our contemporary digital life.
