MUI Dallas Academic Plan

2013/2014

God says, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is
old, he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6). A child must be
trained daily. To train means to exercise, to discipline, to teach and
form by practice. When a child is trained, it becomes part of his
character to do what he has been taught, and training must take
place all through the day every day.

TECHNOLOGY, con’t.

Why technology….


Builds background knowledge


Classrooms of diverse learners can use technology and
the internet to build knowledge of people, places, and
things they may have never before experienced


Variety of accommodations


Screen size and print can be enlarged for students who
have difficulty viewing printed text


Text can be read aloud to students as they follow along


Most programs contain activities that are interactive
and allow students to manipulate objects while
exploring new concepts







TECHNOLOGY, cont.



Empower
students to take ownership of learning


It is vital because it teaches 21st Century work skills
