Welcome to the Technology Department! Technology plays an integral role in the future of our students and at NCA, we take technology in education seriously!
NCA provides a wide variety of tech tools. The computer lab has 24 computers running Win10 and Microsoft Office 2016. In the classroom, students use Chromebooks from 14 mobile carts. We have a total of 350 Chromebooks for students. Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten have 45 new NPole Kids Tablets, which are loaded with educational apps. Media students use a new 4K Sony video camera and edit on 3 designated video editing computers. Yearbook students use several DSLR cameras in their work. Art students are learning to use the new FlashForge 3D printer. Students also learn to program with SMARTLAB ReconRovers and Ozobots.
All classrooms are equipped with projection systems or interactive SMARTBoards and sound. Teachers use iPevo document cameras to demonstrate and teach.
NCA also uses the Google GSuite educational package of tools. GSuite includes Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Forms, Slides, Google Classroom and more. Students use Classroom to work on digital content, take online quizzes, view digital resources and submit work to teachers.
