Primary 1:1 Technology Program
In grades PYP 1 (Preschool) to PYP 8 (Grade 5) students will be issued school-owned technology devices to be used within the classroom. Students are not required to bring any additional forms of technology during the primary years of study.
The goal of the technology program within the primary years is to introduce a wide variety of technology devices and operating systems in order for students to develop a strong foundational understanding of how the technology works within an educational system. Students will be trained on various applications to help accomplish this goal as well as using online databases and search engines.
iPad Air Program
In grades PYP 1 to PYP 3 (Kindergarten) students will be issued an iPad Air as part of their daily activities. The iPads are stored within the classroom and are an integral part of various lessons and units. Students will heavily focus using the iPads to help build motor skills and become familiar with how applications work in a modern technology environment.
In grades PYP 4 (Grade 1) to PYP 8 (Grade 5) students will continue their knowledge of technology through the introduction of Chromebooks. These devices will continue to build off of the foundational knowledge that the iPad program introduced. Students will be introduced to cloud-based applications, storage, and a larger selection of Internet tools that can be used for daily learning. The Chromebooks are stored within the classroom; however, students may bring these devices when requested to additional classes such as languages or arts.
