Technology

The Craig School has been at the forefront of emerging educational technology since our inception in mid 1980's. In this fluid and ever-changing field a dramatic shift has occurred and a new mindset has emerged. Technology affords students unique access to information and ideas. Technology can improve communication, refine writing and enhance thinking skills. While technology used to be reserved for a class at a designated time it has now become infused into the curriculum and throughout our student's lives. In order to meet the growing demands of the 21st century learner we, as a school must strive valiantly to allow our students opportunities to experience technologically rich learning environments that enables them to collaborate, communicate and think critically.
Our technology curriculum is aligned with the NJ Student Learning Standards. In addition to the weekly technology class, our students have multiple opportunities to access and use a variety of devices. Whether it be a tablet, calculator, digital camera, Google Expeditions or laptop students have multiple opportunities to interact in meaningful and purposeful ways.

STEM LAB

The student-centered, student-driven, STEM Lab was created, thanks to the generous donations of our alumni in 2017, to inspire the love of learning science. The goal was to establish a space where students could create, collaborate and think critically about the problems facing our community and the world at large. It also affords them an opportunity to power innovative thought through the design process to validate a solution. It houses standing desks, collaborative tables for students to work on group projects, a 3D printer, Makey Makey projects, a grow lab, and an interactive projector to present the culmination of their findings.
