TECHNOLOGY at Emerson is a catalyst for teaching and learning, opening a world of ways to discover, create, communicate, and collaborate.
From kindergarteners learning to keyboard to 4th grade movie-makers producing book reviews to 8th graders writing computer programs to propel Lego robots, technology is an ever-present and empowering tool. Emerson integrates technology into core classroom activities across multiple disciplines, and hosts a busy Intranet used by students at all levels.
Reaching beyond the classroom, understanding the ethical and societal issues of technology is a focus at Emerson, since it is a requirement of good citizenship in today’s world.
The development of skills and knowledge essential for participation in a technologically oriented global society is our focus.
