What is the mission of technology integration at Abingdon?

Abingdon students pride themselves on being both consumers and producers of digital and non-digital content.  This idea of consuming digital content and producing original digital content is kept at the heart of our technology integration program.  But what do we mean by Consumers and Producers?

What are students doing with Technology at Abingdon? 

At Abingdon, we believe in preparing students for their future careers by embedding 21st century skills into our instruction. Our students are researching, publishing digital eBooks, producing movies, blogging, participating in online discussions, and managing all of their digital resources in their own virtual classrooms.  Please see the Personalized Learning Page and the Implementation at Abingdon Page for more specific information about the iPad Initiative in grades 3 through 5. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum in a “real world” way.  Students are often challenged with tasks that mimic the business world. They not only use the technology to search and sort information for understanding, but also to create and communicate meaning by “smashing” many different apps or technologies together in order to create dynamic products.

Here are a few of the technology projects that have been done at Abingdon.

What Technology is available to the students at Abingdon? Abingdon currently has five laptop carts with MacBook Airs for classes to check out and use for flexible learning, 1:1 iPad classrooms (grades 3, 4 and 5), and 2:1 iPad classrooms (grades K, 1, and 2).

#WhiteFragility Ch.8: Really striking to think about extremes white ppl employ to protect racial equilibrium. Amy Coopers, #whitetears, all to pull power/focus back away from racial other. AND how simple it could be to change it - SHUT UP & LISTEN. It's ok to not be in control.

#WhiteFragility Ch.7: having a hard time thinking of what to say besides "YES, all of this!" Thinking of lots of white fragility responses I've seen/exhibited & appreciate concrete examples so I can continue examining myself & my surroundings. #antiracism

I see it in expecting Ss of colour to act like white Ss, as if that's the only way to be respectful/acceptable. I see it in having thought in the past, maybe that POC who was shot by a cop shouldn't have escalated. Uh, not all reactions are escalations! 🤦‍♀️ Making room for growth.

Getting there... I see anti-blackness in how I've reacted in my own mind about protests that turned into looting, not fully appreciating the hurt & damage that led up to the level of righteous anger exhibited. Still don't know how to square that w/ not agreeing w/ destruction.
