HBA’s Technology Approach

HBA’s twofold approach to technology instruction and application is founded on the belief that technology is a tool and that technology skill development is more effective in the context of a course that uses technology as a means to an end.  The programs that compose this approach are:

Technology Integration

Our teachers embed relevant technologies in the core curriculum to teach and apply basic technological skills as well as to enhance learning. Some of the examples of Technology Integration are:

  • 1:1 in-class iPads for K-3
  • 1:1 in-class Chromebooks for 4-6
  • 1:1 Chromebook Initiative in grades 7-12
  • Mobile and/or Desktop Computer Labs on all campuses
  • Google accounts for students in grades 4-12
  • Adobe Accounts for 7-12

Technology Intensive [TI] Courses

High school students must take at least one “Tech Intensive” designated course in their high school career from grades 9-12. These are courses in which students consistently learn and employ advanced technological skills and tools to meet real world needs. Some of the Tech Intensive courses are:

  • Intro to Animation
  • Intro to CGI Animation
  • Intro to Filmmaking
