Tablets, cell phones, and computers are becoming more of a need than a necessity . Children today are using computers in the classroom to be creative and innovative all the while using critical thinking and problem solving skills. My goal is for students to communicate, collaborate, and create to better understand the hardware/software they will use later on in life. The goal throughout their years at Canyon is for each student to be proficient in technology as they learn and demonstrate good digital citizenship.
The expectations of the Common Core State Standards include the full integration of technology into all standards. Technology is used to both learn and show what has been learned. Canyon Charter has invested in the future of our children with the goal to provide a 2-1 laptop/tablet ratio in all grades. All grades (K-5) receive in-class computer instruction once a week.
