Punahou prepares its students and educators for the 21st century by supporting a variety of technology programs and services, allowing students the ability to individualize their learning and teachers the ability to individualize instruction.
Students benefit from technology, where it is guided by the curriculum and teaching/learning strategies. For the youngest students, computers are available to use in the classroom and in the Damon Multimedia Room, where students work together and individually. The Richard and Linda Kelley Computer Center serves grades 6, 7 and 8. During the school year, courses in computing, filmmaking, journalism and the production of the yearbook keep it busy. Computer labs currently support Academy student technology requirements.
Technology services also include computer facilities and networks, media resources, visual production (including the design and production of instructional and administrative materials), and video, digital video and audio production.
One to One Computing Program Beginning in grade 4, students participate in Punahou's One to One Computing Program, where each student receives a computer to use for the school year. The goal of this program is to establish learning environments where students are comfortable with the use of technology to learn, communicate and create.
Lab School @ Punahou By offering additional learning opportunities for faculty, including the summer Lab School @ Punahou, Punahou continues to create a school where faculty look to and utilize technology naturally and appropriately.
