Students in every grade (K-5) attend Technology class once a week for a 35-minute session.  The elementary curriculum is comprised of computer application skills, coding, and digital citizenship. 

Kindergarten students will be introduced to technology concepts through hands-on activities, educational videos, storybooks, and interactive SmartBoard activities.  

Grade 1 classes come to the technology lab for an introduction to the parts of a computer, log on/off procedures, mouse skills, educational games, and coding activities.

Students in grade 2 learn the skill of touch typing on a keyboard using TypingClub.  Educational games and coding activities are infused through various applications.

In the spiraled curriculum of grades 3-5, proper keyboarding techniques are reinforced, coding activities continue, and students learn a variety of computer applications using Microsoft Office software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) or G-Suite.

Elementary technology instruction is based on New Jersey Student Learning Standards.  In-class projects are assigned, which may be aligned with the Social Studies and Science curricula in grades 3-5.

New Jersey Student Learning Assessments (NJSLA) will be administered in the Spring of 2019 for students in grades 3-5.  Students will be exposed to the online platform of these standardized tests in both ELA and Math.
