Center for Modern Media

The Databazaar Center for Modern Media at The Blake School is the centerpiece of the school’s hybrid learning environment where traditional education and modern technology converge to give Blake students a competitive edge. Built and maintained as a gift from the Databazaar group of companies, the media center, the interactive school website, and the wired classrooms together provide for a unique technology-driven curriculum rarely found in a K-8 school.

Along with delivering the TechnoKids curriculum, the media center offers students and faculty a variety of state-of-the-art digital resources, including video, music, photography, graphic design and Web design capabilities, which they can integrate into educational projects and curriculum.

 

The mission of the Media Center is :

  1. To integrate the knowledge of technology to the existing curriculum at all levels.
  2. To empower students with essential technology skills to enter the digital world.
