Sandy Spring Friends School



Lower School Technology

The Sandy Spring Lower School believes that technology skills are best learned by using and integrating them into the context of class-related projects.At Sandy Spring Friends School, technology is integrated by teachers in project-based learning assignments across the curriculum for each grade level. IPads and Chrome books are used extensively as tools for exploration, collaboration, and as a demonstration of our students’ learning. Students use teacher-selected iPad apps and online resources as learning tools to help them acquire important, developmentally-appropriate learning skills in exciting new ways. All apps are chosen to challenge and address the individualized learning needs and styles of students.
