As the only Pre-K–12 independent school in Southern Maryland to deploy a campus-wide wireless network and the first to launch a 1 to 1 iPad program for their lower school, The Calverton School leads the way in the thoughtful integration of technology and learning. Teachers and students understand that the future belongs to those who are prepared to exploit technology’s potential through the use of state-of-the art tools available in every Calverton's classroom.
The Calverton School is excited to announce Office 365 for all students and staff! Because of the Calverton School’s membership in MEEC (Maryland Education Enterprise Consortium) and agreements with Microsoft, students and staff are able to download and install Microsoft Office applications on their home devices for FREE! This includes Windows, Apple OS and Android devices.
Office 365 also provides web-based versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote as well as 1TB of storage space for documents. Office 365 is a cloud-based service accessible from any device anywhere in the world with an internet connection. The only requirement is that you have your Calverton School username and password. Students can access their personal folders on school and home devices in a secure environment. Office 365 provides numerous collaboration tools and opportunities for student and teacher interaction.
Anytime Anywhere Learning is a new BYOD Student Laptop initiative for the Calverton School, which recognizes that in today’s information driven global society, learning should not be bound by the walls of the classroom or the hours of the school day.
Beginning in grade 6, Calverton integrates student-owned laptop computers throughout the curriculum. Bringing the world’s information resources to every student’s desk offers an unparalleled opportunity to enhance problem solving, improve collaboration, deepen understanding, improve achievement, and foster lifelong learning.
The Calverton School is committed to excellence in its technology program. To help us achieve this goal, we are forming a technology advisory committee. The committee will be comprised of parents, faculty, and students to work with us in an advisory capacity to improve our technology program, including curriculum development and facilities enhancements.
We invite all interested persons to serve a two-year term on this technology advisory committee. By participating on this committee, you will have an opportunity to guide the Calverton School and to promote and improve the technology program.
We are planning to use conferencing call (video and audio) technology to facilitate the meetings. If you are interested in becoming a member of the advisory committee, please email Sean Polk, firstname.lastname@example.org
