LES Technology

 

"Technology alone will not improve education, but it can be a powerful part of the solution."

Lanesborough Elementary is committed to the integration of technology throughout the students' K - 6 learning experiences.  LES was fortunate to receive the Digital Connection Partnership Grant from the state. The grant, along with contributions from the L.I.F.E. grant and the local community, allowed us to update our network and purchase iPads for grades 5 and 6. We were also able to upgrade the computer lab which enabled us to install the older Mac minis that were in the lab, in grades K - 4. Each classroom now has at least 2 Mac minis thereby allowing classroom teachers to establish a technology learning center within their classroom. Each classroom in grades K - 3 also have 3 ipad minis. We now have 1:1 chromebooks for all students in grades 3 - 6. Grades 3 - 6 will be taking MCAS online on these chromebooks.

Grades K - 6 have one 40-minute period with the instructional technology teacher each week. In addition, all classes come in for an extra period for additional student support . The instructional technology teacher works closely with the classroom teachers to coordinate and integrate technology into the grade-level curriculum. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the instructional technology teacher:
