Every family has a different set of rules for technology in their home, but most all of us accept that technology is here to stay, and empowering our children to use it responsibly is an important part of their education. Below we have provided a list of technological tools and apps that we feel can be beneficial to your child's technological growth and development. With each listing we will provide the platform the tool/app is supported by and whether or not there is a cost to that item.
These are only suggested programs and apps, and LAM highly recommends all parents/guardians closely monitor their children's use of technology, especially the internet, at all times.
If you have any suggestions please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will research your suggestion and determine if we feel its a good fit for our students.
