Every Kindergarten through Grade 4 classroom has about 1 school-provided Apple device (a combination of iPads, laptops, and desktop computers that are shared) for each student to use during the school day.
Our digital literacy coach works side-by-side with both students and teachers, observing, training and expanding the use of technology in meaningful ways to continually increase engagement and improve student achievement. Students
work individually and with partners on desktop computers, laptops and iPads; they also interact with SmartBoards (interactive white boards). Our students use these forms of technology to learn proper technology etiquette and teamwork, investigate questions, research topics, publish their original writing and practice and review typing and other types of skills. Students learn that while computers and iPads are fun and games, they are also amazingly powerful tools that help
us learn and create.
Students have access to a wide variety of software including (depending on grade level and classwork requirements) iWork, iLife, Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Apple Final Cut Pro, Timeline 3D, Comic Life, Visual Thesaurus, Ultrakey, PinYinMaker, Tux Paint, and others
