The digital age requires high academic standards, technological fluency, communication skills, interpersonal skills, information literacy, and independence in learning and critical thinking abilities.

These requirements reflect the need for educators to rethink current practices and acknowledge that technology is both a tool and a catalyst for creating pedagogical change.

Technology has been shown to accelerate, enrich and deepen basic skills, but it also has the ability to enhance the development of basic skills and apply them in today's digital age through problem solving, collaboration, analysis, evaluation and design.

Technology is an integral part of Chappaqua's culture, and will continually evolve to ensure that the District prepares all students to live, learn and work in a global knowledge-based society.
