**What our students learn**
Technology is an ever-changing field, and our commitment is to ensure that our students continue to make strides learning with technology in a safe, teacher-directed environment here at Dr. William Burrus Elementary. Our main classroom computer lab contains 26 desktop computers and a classroom printer. Our secondary lab contains 21 desktop computers, 3 Chromebooks, and a classroom printer. A mobile iPad Cart with 25 iPads is available and utilized by teachers as needed. The WBE PTO funds a full-time computer technology instructor for all of our K-5 students.
Classroom lab learning activities center around these main areas:
- Keyboarding/ Google Classroom
- Cyber Safety/Digital Citizenship
- Technology/Computer Basics
- iPad enrichment
- An introduction to Computer Science/Coding Skills
- Word processing/Spreadsheet design/Slide presentations
One week we may take virtual field trips with Google Earth, the next week students may compete with keyboarding challenges, and another week students may learn how to code, using Code.org and Scratch Jr. Regardless of the lesson, students learn in a lab environment that celebrates creativity and innovation.
Our students are lab leaders. They work on collaborative technology lessons, they are responsible users of our equipment, and they make valuable contributions in class. Ultimately, our WBE students are learning the skills that will enable them to succeed in our connected world.
