Technology Curriculum and Information

The technology curriculum trains students to use technology as a tool for writing, research, communication, academic skills development and practice. Computer activities draw on the Massachusetts Technology Literacy Standards, and include keyboarding skills, productivity software application, safety on the internet, integration of digital media, use of communication tools, and understanding basic computer technology. The library has networked workstations with filtered Internet access. Stations are outfitted with a variety of educational software such as typing programs and the Google Apps Suite (Grade 3-6). Additionally, students have access to and are trained on using research databases. In addition to the scheduled computer time, the lab is also used by classroom teachers for special projects such as virtual field trips, research, and writing assignments. All classrooms in grades 1-6 are currently 1:1, meaning each child has a device that is available to them throughout the day.
