Technology is used to thoughtfully support our curriculum and as a vehicle for children’s learning.
Students use iPads and Chromebooks to support classroom learning in reading (RAZ Kids) and math (IXL and Number Bonds). Students use IXL and various math games to support skill development through self-paced practice. We carefully communicate with families regarding suggested applications to use at home, and appropriate amounts of screen time for young children. Additionally, students use online resources in Library to develop early research skills related to classroom topics. Students also use various supplementary iPad apps to support learning in geography (Stack the States) and spatial relationships (Linkbridge). Tower’s early grades are intentionally focused on hands-on experiences and social/collaborative projects appropriate to the age of the children.
