WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING IN THE TECHNOLOGY CENTER

Technology is growing by leaps and bounds all around us.  Almost everyone has a computer, laptop, tablet, smart phone or some other type of computing device.  If you’re not savvy to the ways of the technology, then you’re not ready for the future.  Well, at the Technology Center at Saint Peter School, our students not only learn how to use their computers, but delve deep into the different tools available to them and put them to good use during the year and for the future.  So, please stop by and take a look at our Technology Center and see our modern, up-to-date equipment. 

Our iPad technology has really grown with 150 iPads and 5 PowerSync charging carts to house them.  Each homeroom in Grades K-5 will have a 30 iPad cart and teachers can use them as part of their regular lesson plans in a one to one environment.  For Grades 6, 7, & 8, we have Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablets, also with a one to one environment.  But that’s not all!  We are now a Google Application School with access to Google Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets and Classroom. Of course, we will all be learning the best way to use these new tools and we look forward to an exciting year in Technology.  And don’t forget, all classrooms have a permanent Smart Board installed.

 

All sorts of exciting things will be happening this year in the Technology Center.  Here are just a few to give you an idea:

  • iPad Technology
  • Surface Pro 4 Technology
  • Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, Classroom
  • Touch Typing
  • Using the Internet safely for research
  • Creating Holiday Greeting Cards
  • Internet Based Language Arts and Science Apps
  • The use of Smart Board Technology (but not just in the Technology Center)
  • A 40” Hi Def TV in the Media Center with an Internet connection
  • A 3D Printer in the Art Room (Imagination Station)

 

and much, much more…See everybody real soon. Be safe and be well.
