By integrating contemporary technologies into schools, teachers can more effectively reach students, manage their classrooms, and ensure parents are well-informed and active participants in their child’s education.
We’ve built a foundation of expert services and solutions, based on the specific needs of educational organizations, including budgetary restrictions. Starting there, we work with stakeholders to craft a custom, school-specific technology program designed to help your school operate seamlessly.
Our goal is to provide a cohesive learning environment that utilizes technology in a way that enhances the experience for both staff and students. This means starting at your tech foundation and working up.
Our friendly and knowledgeable support team is always on hand and ready to assist you with any technical questions. We can be reached by email, phone, or even text message! Our team also schedules regular onsite tech support to provide one-on-one time with teachers and staff members.
Stabilizing while getting ready for the future
Bonsai provides an array of foundational services with an emphasis on addressing immediate challenges impacting the school day to day, while building a robust year over year technology plan. This foundation includes:
This includes a complimentary initial assessment to evaluate your foundational technology, the campus network, and help you plan for a stronger foundation.
At Bonsai, we believe that technology is a resource that should be utilized by everyone. We understand that maintaining a technology program goes beyond just purchasing a device and handing it to your students. We also understand the risks associated with students accessing the internet. Understanding this, we provide a number of services that help you keep your students safe while still providing them the wealth of information that the internet holds.
Keep your students safe while utilizing the amazing learning opportunities found across the internet.
Bonsai Content Filtering allows administrators to filter the content their students can view on the web. This works by filtering your local network, so it covers all devices students might use. The network based system is useful because it can be implemented on multiple networks with different permissions. This allows staff members to access a network without the same restrictions as the student network. Filtering the network also means that if students use multiple devices they are covered.
Bonsai stays up to date with the latest technology to keep your classroom experience running smoothly. We keep your devices up to date and suggest programs and devices that work together in a cohesive manner.
We help transition new technology into the classroom by providing support and trainings for teachers and staff.
In order to create an interactive classroom environment, we utilize a variety of technologies, including:
Understanding the complex demands of the classroom and curriculum, we design our trainings to empower your teachers to move their students through deeper levels of technology use, from substitution through redefinition, using Dr. Reuben Puentadura’s SAMR model as a guide for evaluating methods of teaching through technology.
|Substitution||S||Technology acts as a direct tool substitute, with no functional improvement|
|Augmentation||A||Technology acts as a direct tool substitute, with functional improvement|
|Modification||M||Technology allows for a significant task redesign|
|Redefinition||R||Technology allows for the creation of new tasks, previously inconceivable|
