Computer Lab: Istation

We have a new addition on campus this year, and that would be....Woodview Elementary's very own Computer Lab! Thanks to the efforts of our new librarian, Mrs. Beck, we have an up and running computer lab. We are blessed to have technology in the classroom, but it is wonderful to have a place to go where there is a full class set of computers, where everyone can be actively engaged with technology at the same time. Where we can all practice a new skill or assessment together. 

With our first visit, everyone learned their login information and how to get set up to their own laptop. Then we all took the starting assessment on Istation. Istation is an awesome literacy program that first assesses each child and then from there...takes the data and provides appropriate practice activities for each child to be challenged, at their level. We wouldn't be able to partake in such a great enrichment practice, as Istation, without the help of our wonderful P.T.A. Thank you P.T.A., this was a great investment!

 This computer lab is a great asset to our campus. I really look forward to our weekly class trips to the computer lab! Six and Seven year olds are NOT too young to be learning and using technology tools! I look forward to making projects in the future, they are such quick learners!
