Ivy's Technology Vision

Ivy Hill students will become responsible digital citizens and fluent users of a variety of technology tools. They will use technology to access and evaluate information, and apply, create, collaborate, and share ideas. They will be able to transfer current knowledge to new technologies and problem solve effectively.
