OLF Elementary Places High Priority In Integrating Technology Into Our Curriculum
OLF installs ActivePanel Titanium Prometheans – 2019
Thanks to a major fundraising drive, OLF Elementary installed seven ActivePanel Titanium Prometheans for the classrooms. The ActivPanel Titanium comes preloaded with a variety of teaching tools – all available at the touch of a button. “We are committed to providing the best educational tools available for our faculty and for the benefit of our students,” said Cindy Hahn, Principal. “We believe these new Prometheans will help engage our students to significantly enhance the learning process.”
Keyboarding is an Essential Computer Literacy Skill
OLF Elementary supports and encourages keyboarding as a key computer technology core subject with formal keyboarding instruction beginning in the 3rd grade. Our goal is for all students to key by touch using correct technique and meet end of level benchmarks when they leave elementary school. To meet this goal, keyboarding components are taught as early as kindergarten. Skill is assessed and progress tracked toward achieving benchmark scores. Ms Celeste Lousteau leads our technology department.
Google Chromebooks in the Computer Lab
OLF Elementary uses Google Chromebooks in our technology lab. Leadership at OLF wanted to move to “more of a cloud-based computing platform” that would deliver applications and provide a “21st century learning environment that would allow creative thinking, collaboration and communication” among students while giving them “access to whatever it is they need.”
