DC is committed to preparing students to be effective users and communicators of information, and literate, responsible citizens in a global economy. We view technology as a pedagogical tool that should not only help achieve those ends, but also increase collaboration, strengthen community, and improve critical thinking. DC teachers lead students in thinking biblically about how Christians should participate in the use and creation of technology.
