The primary purpose of the Technology Department is to provide direction for the future use of technology for learning and teaching at the Detroit Edison Public School Academy. The Detroit Edison Public School Academy is an educational institution that utilizes diverse technologies to enhance the curriculum, professional development, academic and social development of students, staff and community. Technology is essentially concerned with solving problems in an effort to stimulate students’ ingenuity and to encourage them to combine intellectual talents and practical skills. Technology provides a balance between three key areas: systems, information, and materials. In particular, students are encouraged to display ingenuity and creativity in devising practical solutions to given tasks. Technology is valuable for reinforcing and integrating skills learned in other disciplines, especially in the presentation and handling of data and the processes involved in design and problem solving. At the same time, it fosters awareness of the social and ethical implications of technological development.
