We believe that integrating technology into all aspects of teaching, learning and communication enhances learning experiences and promotes a stimulating, high interest learning environment that engages and excites students. As P.S. 87 prepares globally minded citizens for the 21st century we want students to have the technology abilities to be marketable individuals throughout the world. Currently students at YDMA participate in technology classes where they learn essentials for using computers and build digital portfolios. Classrooms are also equipped with technology such as Smart Boards and Prometheans that allow teachers to bring concepts to life through interactive lessons and the use of media through technology. Here are some of the 21st century tools we are using, and ways we are incorporating technology into our school:
