Technology is a term used often and widely but when asked what it means many people quickly reference the electronics common in today's society. Yes, these gadgets are examples of technology but the term encompasses so much more. The definition of technology used by NFA students is "technology helps us solve problems, makes our lives easier, and extends our ability to do things". This definition will be referenced many times through out the school year as we generously promise to learn and grow together as One Body, One Voice, and One Spirit serving our Dear Neighbor.
A NFA student is one who enjoys learning, treasures self, others, and the earth, lives gospel values, and makes reflective choices as a self-directed person. In technology class, we will live these values as we focus on creating documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and websites while using a variety of age appropriate programs and tools. Additionally, each class will be educated on the importance of practicing Internet Safety and being a responsible Cyber Citizen (using NetSmartz and Common Sense Media).
