Technology is an integral part of the learning process at Cove that supports the core mission of our school by providing customized tools to enhance our students' individualized education while preparing them to independently access life strategies to support their short and long term academic and transition goals.
At Cove, students benefit from a “Blended Device Environment” that provides each student with a personalized laptop and access to iPads and iMac desktop computers to meet the needs of each student depending on the task.
The Cove School adheres to the principles of “Universal Design for Learning” (UDL) and believe that a “Blended Device Environment” makes it possible to meet each of the following UDL Guidelines.
- Provide Multiple Means of Representation (the “what” of learning)
- Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression (the “how” of learning)
- Provide Multiple Means of Engagement (the “why” of learning)
