For teachers and students at Valley View School, digital technology is an integral part of their school experience. Our students use digital tools throughout the learning process; from the gathering and organizing of information, to the synthesis of that information, to the presentation of their learning to an audience. Our teachers also use digital tools in a variety of ways; for the purposes of assessment; data collection; and instruction.
It is our mission to support and safeguard students as they develop online safety skills and learn to be good digital citizens in an environment that is safe, but that gradually broadens their experience. We aim to help our students to communicate, function, and create change on local, national, and global levels, in ways that are responsible and respectful of others. The use of digital devices throughout the learning process, with teacher support and careful supervision, provides opportunities for students to practice digital citizenship in contexts that mirror real life.
