Solana Beach: Santa Fe Christian gets a boost in technology

The summer of 2011 was busy and productive for Santa Fe Christian Schools. Technology upgrades and renovated classrooms are a few of the numerous enhancements that will be utilized to accelerate learning in the classroom.

Santa Fe has introduced many new cutting edge tools, including one-to-one computing with Lenovo laptops and tablets, Polyvision Eno digital interactive touchscreen whiteboards, Yamaha keyboards and LanSchool collaborative software. The most in-demand gadget has to be the Qwizdom “clickers,” a student handheld remote system that allows students to get involved instantly in classroom lessons. The devices aid the teachers in assessing each student individually, giving them immediate feedback during class. Jim Hays, SFCS’s information technology director, has worked closely with the faculty to bring the latest technology and innovation into the classroom. “These new tools will have a dynamic impact not only on how we teach but how we learn.”
Newly remodeled classrooms welcomed students and will support all the new hardware and software upgrades. An interior renovation of the original historical bungalows was completed during an eight-week period, which included new energy efficient windows, new heating and air conditioning units and the replacement of all lighting fixtures throughout the school. With the rewiring and re-cabling of the classrooms, students at Santa Fe will have access to the most up-to-date educational tools available.

Santa Fe Christian Schools is a Pre-K through 12th grade college preparatory school in Solana Beach. Call (858) 755-8900 or visit www.sfcs.net
