Technology at Falmouth Academy
Falmouth Academy has taken a “best fit” approach to instructional technology. As with all curricular decisions, we rely on teachers to be thoughtful and strategic in how and when they leverage a variety of technology resources. Students are not required to but are welcome to bring their own personal devices—computers or tablets—to school and use them under the guidance of their classroom teachers. We don’t recommend one device over another, however, a device with internet access and a physical keyboard is preferable.
For those lessons that require computers, students and teachers have easy access to a fully outfitted computer laboratory, iPads for use throughout the school, and computers and laptops for independent student use in the library.
