At our school, we understand the importance of integrating technology into and across the curriculum. Staff development opportunities are provided to teachers throughout the school year so that their digital toolboxes are well-equipped to enhance the learning process. Students have the opportunity to receive instruction (face-to-face and virtually) from the Instructional Technology Specialist upon teacher request. Technology can be seen in the classroom in the hands of children on a regular basis. We also have five computer labs where students are actively engaged in rigorous, relevant learning experiences every day.
We consider the ISTE standards when planning instruction to ensure that students have the knowledge that they need to learn effectively and grow productively in an increasingly global and digital world. Click here for a copy of the ISTE standards for students.
We strongly encourage families to visit the Common Sense Media website to access a plethora of resources to help keep children safe online and prepare them in becoming responsible digital citizens. https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/connecting-families
