Learning & Technology Innovation
Technology infusion across the curriculum at CSN is a primary goal in meeting ‘Academic Excellence’ as we seek to prepare students with the 21st-century skills critical for thriving in a changing, global world. CSN is “driven by a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning, shaped by a spirit of community and collaboration.” Therefore, innovative curricular design & technology is at the core of communication, skill development and collaboration among its community of learners.
Technology is witnessed throughout the school and proven when stepping inside the classrooms, outfitted with the state-of-the-art resources, Smart Boards, and computer labs with iMac computer stations.
Students are engaged in learning and understanding how to use technology in both effective and secure ways, especially given the ever-changing global digital environment in which we live.
Digital Citizenship curriculum is in place to address the many steps students, as ‘digital natives’ need to take to keep themselves and others around them safe while online. Important to the process, is managing and enhancing one’s digital footprint that student steps leave behind.Dr. Vivienne B. CarrDirector of Learning and Technology
On Saturday, January 13, twelve CSN students traveled to North Port for the “Clash at the Creek” Robotics Competition.
Sixth grade students Austin Zimm and Megan Headrick dominated the qualification rounds with Robot 94D, bringing home two trophies: TOURNAMENT CHAMPS as well as the coveted JUDGES AWARD. Their 1st place finish qualifies Team 94D to advance to the VEX IQ Florida State Competition at the end of February!
Congratulations also to Team 94M, comprised of 8th graders Lucca Gaddini, Gabe Katz, and Corbin Kukk, who made it to the semifinals in their division (VEX EDR).
