“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn."
The computer lab at Jackson Elementary is a place for our children to learn foundational, technological skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. In the lab, they are encouraged to use technology to apply and incorporate lessons that they learn in their classrooms with creativity, individuality, and imagination.
Our lab is equipped with a computer for every child in class. We also have digital cameras, a scanner, and a color laser printer for all of our special projects.
The newest addition to our lab at Jackson is a Promethean ActivBoard. This interactive whiteboard has proven to be a great teaching tool, engaging students with its vivid images, video, and audio.Anything that can be seen or done on a computer screen can now be projected onto the interactive whiteboard -- bringing every class to life.
In class, students typically focus on improving their keyboarding skills and learning the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, PowerPoint, & Publisher).In doing so, they are acquainted, early on, with the tools they will need to succeed.We also use the Kid Tools programs (KidPix, Kidspiration, & Graph Club) to create extraordinary student projects, and IStation for valuable learning experiences.
