The Lower School Technology Lab is a place to learn about technology and to use technology to further our learning. Technology is integrated into the classroom experience using 1-to-1 iPads in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. Kindergarten and 1st grade have classroom sets that they share with partners.
Our goal when using any form of technology with students is that it enhance the learning experience and that it offers news ways to communicate, collaborate, and create. We use SmartBoards or Epson Brightlink Whiteboards in all classrooms both for teaching and as an interactive experience for the students. Learning to use digital still and video cameras and work with images is an important component of the program.
Just-in-Time Digital Citizenship lessons take place throughout the year. Our goal is to look ahead to what might be potential concerns before activities are introduced and hold discussions or create active learning experiences around those issues in advance of the lessons. This sets up a cultures of responsible use, respect for classmates, and a continuous awareness of the positive (or negative) role technology can play in our lives.
