MDA approaches technology in the classroom with intention, applying a discerning process to choose the tools and programs we incorporate to ensure that all learning needs are considered.
We believe that technology can foster creativity and a broadened sense of exploration, while instilling a sense of responsibility and shaping the way students learn.
