Havens Elementary’s technology curriculum teaches students to use digital tools to access, manage, evaluate and synthesize information in order to solve problems individually and collaboratively. The technology curriculum is integrated with all curricular areas, and is used as an instructional tool in reading, writing, math and science instruction.
The school’s technology program also emphasizes digital literacy and citizenship, including units developed by commonsensemedia.org. to address these topics in an age-appropriate way. Lessons focus on thinking critically, behaving safely and participating responsibly with digital media.
With the district adoption of Computer Science standards (CSTA) in 2014 more activities focused on computational thinking and building a foundational knowledge of computer science will be featured.
Through generous support of the tri-school parent community, Piedmont elementary school students have classroom technology in the form of Chromebooks.
