- With a computer lab that has access to 30 laptops and 5 desktops, and 6 laptop carts that hold 10 wireless laptops each, teachers may reserve the computer lab for their entire class, or they can check out a laptop cart for smaller groups. Students have access to a full range of productivity software, including, but not limited to Microsoft Office 2007, The Graph Club, ActivInspire, PhotoStory, Frames, Pixie, Windows Movie Maker, Kidspiration 3, Inspiration 8, Kidspiration, and Internet Explorer. We are also excited about using programs purchased by the county through the Internet like Wixie, Wikispaces, Edublogs, Socrative, Google Apps and Edmodo.
- All classrooms have 4 new networked computers with cable Internet access. In many classrooms children use these computers throughout the day as they rotate through learning centers.
- We also have document cameras, web cameras, Flip Cameras, and a Tandberg unit for students to capture their learning experiences throughout the day and to connect with other classrooms around the world through Skype sessions.
|At any given time in our building, students might be researching a topic on the Internet, creating a digital movie or digital presentation in lieu of a written report, making a chart in a spreadsheet or a graphing program, sending a story or movie from a hand-held device to a desktop, using an app to practice skills learned in their content are, or collaborating with a classroom or career professional through a Skype session.
