Veer off to the left immediately upon entering the Library and you are in the Technology Lab, a vibrant white space filled with computer stations. Teachers schedule class time in the Technology Lab for their students to learn keyboarding, research topics for class projects, and play interactive math and Spanish quiz games. Early on, students write many of their papers using the computer and creating presentations utilizing multi-media tools.
All Pennfield students have access to iPads. Students in grades six through eight have one-to-one usage and Preschool through grade five have access to a classroom set of iPads. Faculty are constantly learning about new iPad applications and how to develop technology-infused lesson plans, all to facilitate a more differentiated curriculum to benefit our students. As students make their transition to the digital workspace, they have access to eBooks and digital textbooks. Students stay organized with the help of digital plan books, note taking applications, Pages word processing and Keynote presentations.
Upon graduation, students are well prepared to use technology as well as traditional resourcing skills to do research. They also have a solid, working knowledge of word processing, multimedia presentations and are adept at finding their way around on a computer for educational and class work purposes.
