At Emma Willard, we are constantly striving to create new and exciting opportunities for both students and faculty to engage with technology outside of the classroom in ways that are purposeful for the Emma Willard community. This helps members create connections with the community and empower students to develop leadership skills while also learning about technology’s role in the world. Here are some examples of these initiatives:
Emma Willard School has a BYOD (“Bring Your Own Device”) policy requiring students to have a working laptop computer while at Emma Willard. Laptops are used both inside and outside of the classroom. On campus, students have access to shared computers in the Dietel Library and printers located in the basement of Slocum Hall, on the main floor of the Dietel Library, and in the 2E-cafe. Wireless internet access is available throughout the entire campus. All classrooms are equipped with modern audio visual equipment. An Arts Lab equipped with iMacs is used for Digital Art & Photography courses.
