Whitfield introduces STEAM skills and concepts that students immediately use in their classes and will lean upon in college and in the working world. This emphasis on practical application ensures we are cultivating tomorrow's community leaders and innovators.
APPROACH TO STEAM EDUCATION
The Habits of Mind & Heart inform everything we do. Whitfield's commitment to character development extends to the IT realm through acceptable use guidelines, digital citizenship, copyright, and mindfulness.
Whitfield provides a powerful, flexible infrastructure and laptop experience for all students, faculty, and staff members. Windows 10 laptops from the Microsoft Surface Pro line allow us to touch, type, or hand write in a digital world. And, access to a suite of software and services (from Adobe Creative Cloud to Office 365) allows all our students and faculty to collaborate and create on a professional level. Yet, more often than not, our students will be reaching for pencil and paper, collaborating across both the physical and digital worlds, and looking up at classmates instead of down at a computer.
