Trident Academy believes that assistive technology is a vital tool in helping our students with their learning differences and stay competitive in today’s world. We integrate the latest in assistive technology into our classrooms and curriculum without making the technology the goal. The technology is there to help when needed but always used with a judicious touch by our great teachers.
Students in all grades and learning levels learn to use different forms of technology as resources in becoming independent learners. Our classrooms are equipped interactive touchscreen TVs; our students are completely 1-to-1 with Chromebook tablets (2nd grade and younger) and touchscreen Chromebook laptops (3rd grade and older); teachers and students incorporate multi-sensory tools such as touchscreens, text-to-speech technology, voice recognition, specialized reading software and other tools to ensure our students are getting the best possible learning experience.
Trident Academy’s Educational Technology (EdTech) Director, Kyle Brown, is a Google for Education Certified Trainer, one of about a dozen within the Charleston area. Our EdTech Director provides ongoing assistance and training to students, teachers, and parents to help them learn more about using these rapidly evolving learning tools.
