GOCA’s Information Technology Services (ITS) department supports the use of information technologies for the School’s academic and administrative needs. The mission of Information Technology Services is to encourage and support the productive and innovative use of technology within Global Outreach Charter Academy community.
Every Classroom is Smart Equipped
Each Global Outreach Charter Academy classroom is equipped with a smart board technology to facilitate and enhance the delivery of the academic curriculum in a more efficient and interactive manner.
Teachers who use technology frequently to support learning in their classrooms report greater benefits to student learning, engagement and skills from technology than teachers who spend less time using technology to support learning (“Educators, Technology, and 21st Century Skills: Dispelling Five Myths”).
Portals to Opportunities
Information today comes in many different forms, and the goal of Global Outreach Charter Academy is to ensure that our students master all the myriad ways to access and evaluate information during their educational path and beyond. GOCA’s cutting-edge technological facilities bring together diverse media, classroom instruction, and the latest research tools.
Technology skills are integrated across the curriculum in ways that support and academic coursework while teaching pertinent concepts and skills. GOCA Elementary School is offered a dedicated computer lab where young students learn keyboarding and other important concepts. Mobile computer labs and plentiful in-classroom tools further augment the computer lab. At the Middle School, continues the theme of integrated technology instruction throughout the curriculum.
In every classroom, teachers use smart boards along with a large variety of Internet resources, software, and tools to enhance their instruction and boost the learning process.
GOCA Security Cameras & Video Surveillance Systems
Safeguarding the wellbeing of all GOCA students and employees is a top priority in our School. Advanced system of school security cameras is an important tool for ensuring safety on School grounds. Not only it aids in maintaining safety in a School but also discourages misbehavior.Conspicuously placed school surveillance cameras have been shown to reduce threats of violence and vandalism drastically.
One problem many schools continually struggle with is proper access control of visitors. By implementing school security cameras at entrance doors, GOCA assists the administrative staff to monitor all visitors and make sure they are properly signed in, while still allowing students to move freely around the School premises.
