Vision for Educational Technology

Provident Charter School is dedicated to the development of a digital learning environment tailored for students with language-based learning differences.  Students will use technology as a catalyst for overcoming barriers to printed text as well as a tool for creation, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving.  Students at Provident Charter School will be digitally responsible citizens who are prepared to utilize technology to be successful in a demanding academic environment.  


Provident Charter School is proud to be a Google School!

Why Google?
Google Apps for Education include a variety of web-based publishing tools which foster collaboration, communication, and creation.  Software such as Google Docs and Google Slides allow real-time completion of projects by multiple users.

Why Google for Assistive Tech?
Google offers a variety of apps, extensions, and add-ons that serve as  resources and accessibility tools which are stored directly to individual student Chrome accounts.  Students can sign into their Chrome account on ANY computer (at school or home) and have access to their chosen extensions and add-ons, thus providing personalized  accommodations.  Lastly and importantly, students with dyslexia are able to complete their work alongside their peers without have to use a special device.
