New Technology for Our 5th Graders!
Technology Advancements at Smith Elementary School
There are many types of technology that allow for Universal Design for Learning, which is designing classrooms to accommodate the various learning types that students possess. No two students are the same and by using technology in the classroom with our fifth graders, we hope to accommodate all learning styles that benefit our students.
As we begin this new initiative, we are pleased to inform you that each fifth grade student will be provided a laptop. These laptops have security measures to prevent children from any harmful or dangerous parts of the Internet. While students will be allowed to take home the laptops, these security measures will be kept on the laptops no matter where they are taken. We encourage the students to use the laptops for any necessary homework and extra learning.
Below, you will find several resources that you might find beneficial for your child to use over the summer. We hope that you can partner with us to best prepare your student to succeed with technology in the classroom!
