Technology in the Lab
Each student in 1st-5th grades enjoys weekly 40-minute computer lessons. Teachers are encouraged to bring their classrooms to the computer lab for additional research and learning opportunities.
In the computer lab, students are learning how to use Microsoft Office (1st - 4th grade) and Google Suite (5th grade). Students also learn the basics of coding in order to prepare them for the junior high electives. Lastly, students will complete a hands on unit in Trimester 3 that varies for each grade level. Some projects include robots, creating your own video game, and using circuit boards/coding to bring projects to life.
Our grade level technology proficiencies are based on national standards developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). ISTE is recognized both nationally and internationally as a leader in technology education for students and staff alike. The skills for each year assume a mastery of the skills from the previous year.
