Technology & Media Literacy

Innovation and Exploration

There are few fields as dynamic or fast changing as technology. The Bush School's technology, library, and media literacy curriculum supports the mission and foundations of The Bush School by fostering an equitable and multi-literate community of collaborative and self-sufficient learners. Our teachers strive to be a catalyst for serendipitous exploration, innovation, and engagement with resources across diverse platforms and formats. We know today more than ever that digital technologies provide increasingly powerful tools, offering a variety of educational opportunities that elevate teaching and learning.

Teaching Through The Pandemic

Four remarkable Bush teachers and school leaders share how technology, wellness, anti-racism, and creativity served as beacons for teachers and students as we navigated the challenges and triumphs of this past year. Sean Carroll is a Kindergarten teacher who, like many Bush teachers, leveraged technology in creative and inventive ways to be able to teach students in two places at once, both in-person on campus and at home via telepresence. Technology played a critical role in teaching and learning this year as we discovered new ways to connect via Zoom classrooms and breakout rooms, iPad partners, telepresence, and more.

Blazing A Trail

Ava B. ’32 and Emma A. ’23 are blazing a trail. Together they are at the heart of the Blazer Robotics Club.  The focus of the club is simple: build robots. They know that each member brings a different skill set to the team—whether it’s building, coding, research and development, drivers —the diverse nature makes it a fun and a collaborative environment. “We have big to-do lists to accomplish each week. Most recently it’s been getting our robot ready to compete, and making sure everything is ready for competition,” Ava said. “So things like tightening all the screws, making sure everything is in perfect working order, and building our prongs that lift for the tower, which was the purpose of this last competition.”

The Bush School's technology, library, and media literacy curriculum supports the mission and foundations of The Bush School by working closely with all students to support technical creativity, basic literacies, and information fluency. The Marjorie Livengood Library is a resource for all students from Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade. The library contains more than 16,000 cataloged materials including books, periodicals, audiovisual media, and e-books. Students and teachers also leverage an array of advanced research databases to promote both content-area knowledge and fluency in research methods.

Each division features an engaging and carefully sequenced curriculum in technology and information literacy, ranging from typing exercises to design and coding. The following is a sample of recent projects from each division.
