The Janus School uses technology throughout our programs to support our mission to empower student to succeed. We are committed to helping our students navigate in this 21st Century technology-driven society; teaching and encouraging students to be not just digital citizens, but digital leaders.

Technology contributes to the School’s academic excellence by increasing student engagement with class materials, supporting active learning strategies, fostering communication and collaboration, developing students’ skills for future learning and work, and

The technology you will see at Janus ranges from our 1:1 Chromebook program in all grades, to interactive projectors and panels in all rooms, to assistive technology programs on all devices, to iPad class sets. With WiFi access throughout the building, students, faculty, and staff have access to the global society and network of information that is the internet.

Through modeling and direct instruction, students learn how to search, analyze, and scrutinize the information they have at their fingertips, developing problem solving skills and learning how to build their digital reputation.

Assistive Technology

The Janus School believes that technology is an effective and important tool in helping students with their areas of difficulty. This technology, referred to as assistive technology, is explicitly taught in Middle and Upper Division, and is employed in every classroom.

Janus’s assistive technology program ranges from visual thinking and graphic organizing programs that help students with organizing and visualizing information, to the Voice Typing option in Google Docs, to Read&Write, a program designed to help students with reading, writing, and studying with tools such as text-to-speech, word prediction, and study skills highlighters.

See the lists below for some of the technology that we use at Janus.

  • 1:1 Chromebook Program
    The Janus School has a 1:1 Chromebook program. Each student receives a Lenovo Chromebook that they carry with them throughout the day. Students in grades 6-12 may take their Chromebook home, while students in grades K-5 keep them at school.
