Donna Klein Jewish Academy creates an environment where students gain 21st Century skills through the infusion of technology across all areas of the educational environment. A robust curriculum, scaffolded and aligned to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards bridges the general, Judaic, and Hebrew studies by offering students the opportunities to collaborate, communicate, design, and construct knowledge with technology.
Educational Technology also includes supporting teaching and learning through the DKJA 1:1 device program. Our K-2 students develop digital fluency skills on Apple iPads, while our 3rd-5th grade students expand their learning on Dell 3100 touchscreen Chromebooks. 6th-12th grade students enjoy the DKJA student laptop program, selecting from a range of devices to enhance their learning. Each room on campus is equipped with portable interactive ClearTouch panels, enabling faculty and students to extend the classroom with mobile learning.
The hallmark of the DKJA Educational Technology program is how technology supports curriculum and instruction to meet the needs of all learners. As a Google Apps for Education School, students and faculty have access to the suite of workflow apps from any device with internet access. Each software and tool purchased aligns with content specific needs with the ultimate goal to make learning accessible.
