The Brooklyn Charter School is engaged in using technology as an integral instructional tool through the use of specific software and hardware, and the worldwide web. BCS Technology Specialists utilize Mac laptop labs across the school, ensuring that all students in grades K-5 have an opportunity to learn basic and some advanced computer skills.
Classroom teachers use the laptops to support instruction in all subject areas including reading, word work, writing, math, social studies, science and the arts. Students use the Internet to conduct research, use software connected to the approved curriculum and use various websites to support grammar, phonics, and math fact skills.
BCS uses Epson interactive projectors (similar to Smart Boards) to provide students with another medium with which to view, interact with, and manipulate information. The BCS technology plan integrates the use of specific technology, software and hardware across the school and incorporates the use of iPads.
