Students in Ms. Christine Maloof’s Educational Technology class presented final projects during their class this week.
Students in grades five and six displayed their knowledge of the Microsoft Office Suite through creating innovative PowerPoint presentations highlighting family holiday traditions. The students were also afforded the opportunity to practice public speaking in front of their peers and invited guests. Students in other classes demonstrated their knowledge of important computer navigational and typing skills through a variety of hands-on projects and presentations. Students also culminated their lessons on being Digital Citizens and making safe choices on the Internet and social media.
Students in grades K-6 take their Educational Technology class every Wednesday in our desktop lab as one of their academic enrichment courses. In addition to that, all classrooms are equipped with LCD projection capabilities and are wired to computers. Students in K-2 have access to iPads as reinforcement tools. Students in grades 3-6 participate in a 1:1 laptop program in their classrooms. This innovative program allows for students to work on reports and research right in class with teacher supervision and for students to truly avail themselves of the rich resources of an ever-increasing digital landscape.
