Technology for Learning Initiative (TFL)
The Technology for Learning Initiative focuses on student use of technology to promote active digital citizenship and to enhance student learning through innovation, risk-taking, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creation, and engagement with the global community. The symbols below are used to represent the concepts that ADM believes are essential to adequately prepare students for citizenry and careers in the 21st century.
Quality support, meaningful professional development, and adequate policies and procedures are vital to the success of the Technology for Learning Initiative. The Building administrators, Director of Innovative Learning, and Director of Technology work collaboratively to promote and cultivate an environment that adequately supports the technology-rich classroom.
