Yonkers Public Schools provides a technologically rich learning environment and infrastructure designed to meet the growing technological needs of instruction and communication. Integration of technology in all aspects of instruction supports creative learning environments and the objectives of the New York State Regents Reform Agenda to prepare students for the challenges of post-secondary education and the 21st century workplace.
The Yonkers Public Schools Technology Initiative supports students through unique opportunities to use a broad range of technology tools and techniques. Students participate in diverse technologically rich learning experiences during the school year and through summer programs. An array of technology tools and digital resources are available including computers, laptops, tablets, interactive projectors, document and video cameras, and a range of web tools to differentiate and engage learners. Connecting via a Wide Area Network resource are accessible from school or home, providing ongoing access to educational tools so critical in this digital age. Infusing the vast capabilities of new technologies into every aspect of instruction enriches teaching, learning, communication, and engages staff and students.
Student-centered active learning is enriched through interconnectivity via project based inquiry, blogs, social media, podcasts, videoconferencing, multimedia, and virtual classrooms. Each school has a unique website accessible through http://yonkerspublicschools.org as well as district shared and Open Educational Resource collections through Yonkers Public Schools Quick Links http://yps.yonkerspublicschools.net providing easy access to valuable student and family friendly web resources. These communication and resource networks connect students, teachers, parents, and administrators within school and throughout the District.
Whether robotics, video production, logical design, videoconferencing, or the many creative projects developed by students, technology supports learning in our schools every day.
