Not too long ago, our learners spent most of their time consuming information. Now we have the power to create, share, and experience on demand. Learners and educators are now in control of the information age. Our learners want to have the ability to create not consume. At Dayspring, we continue to move forward with our integration of arts and technology to provide an enriched curriculum that promotes creativity and requires the application of higher level critical thinking skills.
Our learners and educators at DSA collaborate daily as they engage in high energy lessons and diverse experiences utilizing our newest technology tool: the iPad. Our learners are reaching for the stars and are achieving exemplary outcomes. These results are not because of the iPad, but because our expert educators have embraced this opportunity to incorporate the device into their content rich curriculum.
Our Educators are not teaching to the iPad, nor are they teaching applications. Instruction continues to be centered on skills and content. Many of our classrooms use digital lessons while integrating project- based learning. Our educator's assess learning in a more dynamic way through on-line learning management systems. Additionally, assessments are now integrated more consistently and learners are engaged in relevant, purposeful learning experiences every day.
The learners and staff at Dayspring share a strong bond built upon camaraderie, collaboration, and a love of learning. Our day begins with everyone gathering in the assembly hall to share ideas and information while providing a sense of purpose for the day. Parents, learners, and staff are encouraged to communicate frequently as we partner together on this amazing journey to success!
