Academic Technology

IF WE TEACH TODAY THE WAY WE WERE TAUGHT YESTERDAY, WE AREN'T PREPARING STUDENTS FOR TODAY OR TOMORROW.

Whether it's in Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, or Reality Reality, Rutgers Prep is dedicated to providing students and faculty a fully integrated array of digital resources to encourage learning and to enhance teaching. Members of the faculty take great advantage of Virtual Reality headsets, Augmented Reality apps, MakerBot 3D-Printers, iPads, and laptop computers to extend collaboration in the classroom. In addition, every classroom, from Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade, is equipped with projectors and Apple TVs, which allow our faculty to share digital resources with their students. Whether it is a digital presentation or an interactive exercise, instruction and learning are enhanced by this integration of digital and projection technology.

Ubiquitous and uniform technology offers students and faculty greater opportunity to take advantage of digital tools and resources. Electronic textbooks are readily available and significantly less expensive while offering an engaging alternative to the traditional text.

As a Google Apps school, our faculty and students use state-of-the-art management systems to extend their collaborative teaching. In addition, we use a modern Learning Management System to facilitate communication between students and faculty beyond the school day and the campus boundaries. Whether it is simply looking up assignments, contributing to a conversation, or accessing digital resources, this is a key component of our education for the 21st Century.
