Technology & Digital Learning
At JCHS, we strive to find new and engaging technologies, model responsible media habits, teach digital citizenship, and encourage balance in our fast-paced world.
Our academic philosophy embraces the use of technology to support learning and enhance creativity, communication, and collaboration. Our integrative approach introduces students to the myriad of ways that innovative hardware, new software apps, hands-on tinkering and even social media crowd-sourcing can be used to advance our understanding of traditional subject areas like algebra, Tanach, and theater arts.
Student Laptop Program
At JCHS, we want to empower students and families to choose the tools that are most appropriate for them. Research has shown that when students personalize their education, it accelerates learning, so JCHS has a “Bring Your Own Device” policy with regard to student laptop use.
Below are answers to the most frequently asked question about device use along with our suggested technical specifications.
