Technology

Technology is an essential part of a student’s life at Léman Manhattan and is integrated throughout the curriculum in order to further support our students’ path to digital responsibility and global citizenship in the 21st century.

Students learn how to navigate and perform online research, create and critique online content, and edit and produce digital design pieces and multimedia presentations within all curricular areas. Technology-specific courses are offered in both divisions, including digital video production and graphic arts.

We also offer a variety of after-school opportunities in both divisions for students to practice and explore other digital tools and design technologies.

Student Information System

Skyward is a student information system that provides a parent, student, and teacher portal for 24/7 class updates, access to grades, homework assignments, and group projects as well as a notification system to parents’ email or phone. This can be accessed here or through the link at the top of the Léman Manhattan website.

Technology in the Classroom

Classrooms and open learning spaces have Interactive Whiteboards, projectors, access to mobile laptop carts, printers, and five labs with class sets of laptops or desktops. Available for checkout are document cameras, digital cameras, and video cameras. This mobility allows anytime anywhere learning and teaching and prepares our students for success in the digital global world.

Wireless Network

Léman Manhattan Preparatory School’s fiber optic network supports full wireless access throughout both buildings for faculty, staff, students, and guests. This robust network is equipped to support the mobile devices of both teachers and students. This year high school students on a volunteer basis piloted bringing in their own mobile devices with considerable success in supporting personalized learning.

Communication

Students are provided with email in the Upper School for ease of communication with teachers and other students while working collaboratively or communicating with experts.

Data Storage and File Transfer

Students are given user accounts to access their network folders and other network services. They can transport their work by email, flash drives or via the Cloud.

Acceptable Use Policy

Students regularly review the ‘Acceptable Use Policy’ stating the expectations and responsibilities of students, faculty, and staff. Internet access is filtered at different levels as appropriate.

Technology Coaching

Léman Technology Coaches support successful and on-going technology integration across the curriculum in both Lower School and Upper School. Our Tech Coaches work alongside faculty to plan, execute and evaluate curriculum units that engage students in technology use in every discipline from science labs and data analysis to video production and online communication.

Tech Coaches and Library faculty work as one vertical team on the Library InfoTech Department to collaborate on information literacy instruction goals for each grade-level. This curricular plan includes instruction in 21st century instruction and learning in digital citizenship, multi-media presentation, print and online research skills and resource evaluation, exploration of new technologies and digital communication.
