Ipads in the classrooms
In January, each grade level was issued 4 ipads to use in the classrooms. Students will explore various educational websites and teachers will provide opportunities for students to use the Ipads to create products.
Over the summer, we received 6 new printers. Now every classroom is equipped with a printer!
All teachers in grades K - 6 now have either an Innovation Station OR a presentation cart.
The presentation carts consist of Epson mulitmedia projectors and Lumens document cameras. Now teachers can connect their laptops to the projectors and teach utilizing multimedia presentations. Document cameras allow teachers to place papers, books, or 3D objects under the camera and have them projected on a large screen for the entire class to see simultaneously. No need to make plastic transparencies anymore! The document cameras also take pictures and record video.
Lumens document camera and Epson projector
Pease recently received two computer carts containing 20 ASUS netbooks in each cart. The carts are known as COWS (Computers on Wheels). Teachers can check out a cart and roll it to the classroom. The netbooks run the Windows 7 operating system.
As part of the 2008 AISD Technology Bond Package, 6 innovation stations were recently installed in Pease classrooms. 3 stations were installed in May, and 3 were installed in August. The station includes a ceiling mounted projector, a large viewing screen, and a cart which houses a PC, document camera, wireless mouse and keyboard, and Lightspeed Audio system. The teachers use the innovation stations to teach lessons, show videos, and have students lead presentations. All 6 teachers have spent time in district training during the summer and hands on training during the school year. Ask your teacher (or child) about the innovation station.
