Throughout the summer, The Master’s Academy has been receiving a technological upgrade. With the addition of new wireless access points, the entire campus has improved wireless coverage. Improved wireless was needed to support the addition of a mobile netbook lab in the Lower School, as well as the High School iPad initiative. Five new MacBooks were added to the Middle School mobile lab, increasing the number of devices available to Middle School students. In all, TMA now offers students two desktop labs, two mobile labs, and an iPad one to one program! We were also blessed to complete the campus wide transition to Smart brand interactive boards.
Last summer we replaced five boards in the Middle School. This summer, the Lower School classrooms and one Middle School room were equipped with new SmartBoards, completing the transition.
Beyond hardware, we launched a new website. The redesigned website, along with our new Facebook page and athletic website, are designed to keep families informed of all things TMA.
Finally, we are experimenting with future technology with the addition of two Apple TVs in the cafeteria and lobby. One day, not too far in the future, we will integrate the iPad and the Apple TV to provide a unique and valuable learning environment for our students!
