The Dunham School has been recognized again as an Apple Distinguished School for 2019-2022 for its use of innovation and technology to transform the learning experience.
The Dunham School has been been a Apple Distinguished School since 2011.
“The selection of Dunham as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative learning environment,” said Head of School Steven A. Eagleton. “When we talk about innovation and creativity, we’re really talking about students having the ability to understand coding and the creative tools enabled by technology. “
According to a recent release from the Dunham school, Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of leadership and educational excellence. They use Apple Inc. Technology to showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching. The technology inspires creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.
“In addition to enabling engaging with the curriculum to a greater degree, we’re building excitement and equipping our students with important future-ready skills that have real-life relevance and application, “Eagleton said. “The credit goes to our teachers and students for the ways that they apply technology to achieve greater academic success and experience transformational learning.”
The Dunham School will host a technology showcase on Thursday, Feb. 13, to share the knowledge and expertise with the larger community. Student teachers from LSU, Southern University and Southeastern University will attend the sessions from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. During the later sessions, students from Dufrocq and Mayfair elementary schools will be introduced to coding, movie making, virtual reality and other real-world applications of technology.
