Library-Research-Technology (LRT)

RESOURCE CENTER


Through innovative educational technology and purposeful research processes, our students learn to access information effectively, navigate various media, think critically, create, communicate, and collaborate with others, which ultimately prepares them to be successful global citizens.

Trinity students are given a wide variety of opportunities to investigate and apply information communication technologies as they gather, evaluate, utilize, and produce information. In meaningful contexts of inquiry and with purposeful teacher guidance, students comprehend human, cultural, and societal issues related to technology and practice legal and ethical behavior.

By developing their higher-order thinking skills, encouraging thoughtful decision-making, and by inspiring creativity and innovation, students develop the necessary skills and understanding that enable them to learn effectively and live productively.


Libraries

With reading corners, comfortable work surfaces, ready availablility of computers and large group instruction areas with interactive projection technology, the spaces accommodate learning in many forms: from guest lecturers and research-based classes to student-led clubs and "Peaceful Library" yoga meditations.


Technology

We are proud of our extensive digital resources, from iPads and laptops to robotics and 3D printers, but we know that they are only as good as their use. Trinity's teachers employ such resources mindfully, understanding that their value lies entirely in their power to extend and improve learning.


D-Lab

Dream, design, discover. That’s what D-Lab is all about! It’s an innovation makerspace outfitted for hands-on, creative problem solving. Whether sewing fabrics or soldering circuits, programming drones or composing soundtracks, woodworking or 3-D printing, students can bring their ideas to life.
