At Chatham Hall, we recognize that technology is an integral part of life, covering entertainment, socializing, and communications, as well as access to information for academics and general trivia.
Our goal as an institution is to prepare you to be a generous and responsible citizen of the digital age. You might use your laptop to collaborate on a project or an iPad to create an e-book. Today, there is no single tool that covers the entirety of the technological spectrum. As technology changes in the outside world, so too will our usage, our expectations, and our creativity.
You will fully understand the implications of living in a world where information, both good and bad, can travel the world and be presented as truth in a nanosecond. You'll be thoughtful about your use of social media. As adults and mentors, we recognize the positive aspects of these platforms, and support their informed use. You'll learn how to differentiate between good and bad information, and resist the impulse to take the easy way out regarding research.
We envision our students, faculty, and staff representing the best of the age of the new digital citizen.
