Mission

Oakwood School provides a multisensory educational program in which students with learning differences are guided to achieve their unique academic and social potential in a nurturing community environment

Technology

 
At Oakwood, we use technology tools specifically designed to enhance our students’ learning. SMART Boards encourage regular interaction in the classroom, iPads create mobile workspaces for small group and independent learning, and our 1:1 laptop program at the middle-school level prepares students for their upcoming transition to high school.

Digital citizenship
  • Oakwood School believes that students need to be safe, respectful and responsible online. We use curriculum from Common Sense Media, NetSmartzKids, and other sources to teach at all levels.
  • We understand the role technology plays in the lives of students with learning disabilities. Technology is crucial to their success--as a learning tool, not just as an accommodation. We use technology to support learning at all levels of the curriculum.

technology tools
  • We teach students when and how to use the best technology to support their learning. 
  • Purposefully integrating technology into instruction enhances the curriculum and aids in developing necessary skills.
  • Students in all grades have technology classes that explore Google Workspace for Education Apps, coding, 3D design, and printing along with other online programs.
technology skills
  • Being able to touch type allows students to focus on what they are producing and not where their fingers are on the keyboard. 
  • Building muscle memory frees up cognitive energy and helps maintain focus!
  • Students use a variety of typing programs & resources including Read, Write, and Type; Diana King Touch Typing Program, and Typing Agent.
