Resources & Technology

The Carol Morgan School of Santo Domingo strives to provide for its community of life-long learners the most advanced and effective level of academic technology possible. With a dedicated full-time staff made up of directors, technicians, and facilitators, we are continuously working towards this goal. CMS is committed and invested in providing students and teachers with quality educational technology tools and training. The campus has a total of more than five hundred desktop computers and more than one hundred fifty laptops. The campus is equipped with both wired and wireless network and Internet access. In January of 2009 a new multi-million dollar state-of-the-art Library/Technology Center was opened in the center of the campus. This center includes a fully equipped video conferencing room with seating for ninety-two participants. Our staff members are encouraged, supported and trained in an intelligent and systematic way – focused on professional growth and educational relevance.

CMS Academic Web Presence

The faculty at the Carol Morgan School use a combination of web-based technologies for communication and collaboration with students, parent, colleagues and outside schools and organizations. The faculty, staff and administrators use PowerSchool, a centralized online student information system, for efficient data management across our schools and departments. PowerTeacher is the gradebook component of this SIS and includes parent, student, and teacher portals for real-time grading, attendance, and communication. Our Moodle site is called iLearn@Carol Morgan School. Moodle is an online learning management system which hosts class activities, assignments, and academic calendars online for every subject and every grade level. Teachers and students collaborate using a wide variety of online tools, including Google Apps, TurnItIn, Atomic Learning, Edmodo, Diigo and other services.

Technology in the Classroom

Technology integration has been planned for and implemented in all areas of the school. Every classroom is equipped with mounted LCD projectors and there are currently over fifty interactive whiteboards in our classrooms. In addition we currently have over thirty documents cameras. Teachers and students have access to two mobiles labs, six computers labs (two in each school), a dedicated fine arts Mac lab and two library computer labs. The elementary grade 1-5 classrooms are setup with mini-labs containing four Netbooks, for a total of eighty Netbooks in the elementary school. The early childhood has a similar setup using forty-five iPads. There are a variety of student response systems including SMART Response, Microsoft mouse mischief, and virtual clicker software.
