chromebooks for grades 3 - 6
As part of the 2013 AISD Technology Bond Package, Pease was allotted funds to purchase new technology devices. Grades 3 - 6 utilize Chromebooks in class. Each Chromebook is assigned to a specific student. Students are able to log in to their Google Drive accounts and collaborate with other students, check and submit assignments, and share documents and files.
IPADS IN THE CLASSROOM
Grades K - 3 share 8-10 iPads per grade level. Students explore various educational websites and teachers provide opportunities for students to use the Ipads to create products.
All teachers in grades K - 6 have either an Innovation Station OR a presentation cart. The presentation carts consist of Epson mulitmedia projectors and Lumens document cameras. Now teachers can connect their laptops to the projectors and teach utilizing multimedia presentations. Document cameras allow teachers to place papers, books, or 3D objects under the camera and have them projected on a large screen for the entire class to see simultaneously. No need to make plastic transparencies anymore! The document cameras also take pictures and record video.
As part of the 2008 AISD Technology Bond Package, innovation stations were installed in six Pease classrooms. The station includes a ceiling mounted projector, a large viewing screen, and a cart which houses a PC, document camera, wireless mouse and keyboard, and Lightspeed Audio system. The teachers use the innovation stations to teach lessons, show videos, and have students lead presentations.
