In support of our mission to enhance life-long learning, technology must be integrated into daily instruction. We are committed to using technologies to facilitate the process of learning through different modalities and to promote communication and collaboration.
We will provide effective training for students and staff and educate our learners in the ethical application of technology.

Using Technology in the Classrooms Mrs. Gauzza's kindergarten classroom center time looks a little different on Tuesday mornings. During center time, the students still work with Mrs. Taylor, their Early Literacy teaching assistant, to master letters and sounds. They develop their fine motor skills during an independent work center, and read and write with Mrs. Gauzza. However, the students also rotate through a center with Instructional Technology Support Assistant Mrs. Gartner-Baca.
"Mrs. G", as the kids call her, helps the students as they explore different educational apps on the iPads, especially one called Reading Eggs. Working in small groups with the children allows her to guide them through the lessons and activities as well as troubleshoot any issues as they come up. She has worked in each of the kindergarten classrooms this year and visits some routinely. Later in the school year, she will bring laptops into the rooms to introduce computers to the students. They will become familiar with using a mouse or a touchpad on a laptop, develop early typing skills, and basic webpage navigation. Later in the year, Mrs. G will visit classrooms in the first and second grades to help them use different technologies to research during the Winter Wonderland projects. In addition, she plans to go into second grade classrooms to give tips and tricks to students for using Microsoft Word.
