List of 4 items.

  • Pre-K

    Our Pre-K class may use iPads to engage in literature, develop music skills, create digital artwork and video books, and conduct research. They are also used to facilitate small-group instruction.
  • Grades K-2

    First and second grade teachers may use iPads to differentiate math and reading instruction via programs such as IXL, Prodigy, Kids A-Z, and Teach Your Monster to Read. First and second grades also use iPads as part of their Listening Center, as well as for general remediation and enrichment as needed.
  • Grades 3-5

    In third and fourth grade, essential skills in reading, language arts, mathematics, and the sciences are reinforced and learning strategies are explored in an innovative environment. Fifth grade has STEAM class, with the "T" for technology. 
  • Grades 6-8

    Students in grades 6-8 are part of our 1:1 laptop initiative, which requires that all students in those grades purchase or rent a MacBook for daily use. 

    Our STEAM classes incorporate technology regularly. Students have designed stop motion videos, learned the basics of computer programming through SCRATCH, simulations for space and earth science, and more.
     
    In Study Skills class, students are introduced to Common Sense Media to teach internet safety. Teachers use Quizlet Live and Kahoot as interactive tools for vocabulary review, and for math, students use IXL, Kahoot, Quizlet, and Khan Academy.
