Welcome to Norwood-Fontbonne Academy Technology!


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 learn and grow together with One Body, serving our Dear Neighbor.
  

NFA Technology at a Glance:

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.  

Course Objectives:

The ultimate goal of NFA's Technology program is to develop technology literacy among all students.  To become technologically literate students need to develop the ability to use, manage, understand, and assess technology.  These skills are critical to 21st century learning and will serve the student now and in their lives beyond NFA.
