TECHNOLOGY VISION STATEMENT
Friendship Central School's vision is to prepare students to live in a technologically sophisticated society. The ability to use computers and other smart technologies is an essential skill one that our school system will help students acquire. In so doing, Friendship Central School will produce
life-long learners who will be able to access information, manipulate data, synthesize concepts and creatively express ideas to others using video, text, audio and other multimedia.
Technology can virtually bring the world to the student, providing a depth and richness of instructional approaches to reach pupils of all learning modalities. It will permit learners to collaborate, exchange information and share ideas locally, nationally and globally. It is essential that we prepare and enable our learners to develop their individual potential and to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to contribute to a healthy society and a prosperous and sustainable economy.
