21st Century Skill-Building
Every class meets weekly with the computer teacher. Teachers also bring their students to the lab for additional computer use that supports classroom work and projects. A wireless mobile lab and iPads further integrate technology in the curriculum.
In each grade, teachers make use of technological tools to help students conduct research, organize information, create presentations, and document their learning. Technology is used where it makes sense to advance teaching and learning goals. Through discussions of ethical considerations, students also learn about responsible and appropriate use of technology.
Specific skills are incorporated to give students the foundation they need to use the technology at their disposal. Students learn the inner workings of computers, learn and hone their keyboarding skills, and are taught how to make use of various software programs.
