Technology at La Salle Academy

 

Working toward the Common Core State Standards that all students should be college or career ready, La Salle Academy offers its students state of the art technology.  All classes including the Science LabLearner are equipped with smart boards.  Computers in the Technology Lab have been updated in the spring of 2012 with brand new computers and flat screen monitors.  Students in grades 3,4,5 can work on several computers in their classrooms while 6th and 7th graders share one laptop between two students.  Eighth graders, thanks to the generosity of a benefactor, are gifted with their own laptop which they use all year  before taking it home in June to be used in high school.  Students will benefit from IPads during the 2012-2013 school year. 

Teachers and students alike enjoy the many educational programs available online.  Programs like Reading Street, Prentice Hall Reading, Envision Math, First in Math and Brain Pop enhance learning and understanding in challenging and fun ways.  

Technology is used and taught across the curriculum.  Students learn basic technology skills, such as keyboarding, and apply that knowledge while typing reports for all subject areas.  Students’ ELA lessons are enhanced when using technology to produce and publish original writings, as well as interact and collaborate with others through various formats such as blogs.  Technology is used in Math and Science to help students learn tools needed to solve programs and communicate data.  All students enjoy making and learning from digital media presentations such as Prezi.  Students also delight in creating art and musical pieces through technology.
