Elementary computer labs receive STEM curriculum
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math curriculum was delivered to the elementary computer labs on November 30 in preparation for the launch of Project Lead the Way in December.
The STEM curriculum will supplement the current computer lab lessons. There are 24 total kits in the Project Lead the Way curriculum, but only four will be launched this school year.
Four teachers attended special training to become Master Trainers. This will allow them to train the other teachers in their building how to effectively use the new technology.
Project Lead the Way is designed around hands-on activities that integrate with technology and present lessons in an Activity, Project, Problem style that strengthen students' skills in the STEM areas.
The elementary computer labs have been equipped with new tables, chairs, and iPads that will allow flexible seating for the various lessons.
Apple Classroom will be used to allow teachers to manage all of the student devices from one iPad. There are a variety of educational apps and offline projects that will allow students to dive into the subject matter.
The technology team plans to launch Project Lead the Way in December.
