Our school is equipped with a computer lab, which houses 20 computers.
Technology in the classroom
The Junior High students use individual laptops in class.
While students are using the laptops, the teacher is able to monitor each individuals screen, as well as go back through their browsing history. The teacher is also able to lock the students' laptops, preventing them from working further, or send a message so that there is no disturbance to their fellow classmates.
Students use the laptops 3 to 4 days a week, in Social Studies, Math, Science, and Language Arts. Science and Math tests and quizzes can be taken online, with the results emailed to the teacher. The teacher will also receive each individual's test answers via email.
Each classroom have their own set of computers. Many of the older grades utilize Accelerated Math and Accelerated Reader. Grades K, 1, 2, and 3 use an online reading program called RAZ, which stands for Reading A - Z.
All classrooms are equipped with SMARTboards in the classrooms. SMARTboards are large,
TurningPoint Testing system
TurningPoint is a computer system that works interactively with a PowerPoint presentation. Each student receives a Response Card keypad that will submit their answers electronically. The Response Card is a small remote where students choose the corresponding number for their answer.
