Welcome to our Elementary School Technology Program!
The Elementary Tech Team at Colegio Roosevelt has a strong technology integration program always with student learning at the core of its philosophy. It strives to make the use of technology appealing and a successful experience for all elementary students through creativity, communication and collaboration.
The integration process begins at collaborative planning meetings where Tech Coaches meet with all the homeroom and specialist teachers to plan the technology enhanced learning experiences to be integrated into Units of Inquiry (UOI) and other subject areas. As a result of this careful planning, all students in a grade level develop age-appropriate technology skills following ISTE Standards:
The continuing development of teachers’ personal technology skills is key to achieving a technology-rich learning environment. Technology Coaches support teachers to become independent integrators. There are many opportunities for teachers to develop these skills throughout the school year and training takes place in various formats.
STUDENT TECH CONDORS
Every classroom identifies two students as Tech Condors twice a semester. The "Tech Condors" are a team of students from G1 to G5 who take the responsibility to care and maintain the technology in their classrooms. They receive additional training on specific skills and have a role as "experts" in their classrooms helping peers and teachers.
Digital Citizenship Agreements (DCA)
The DCA helps all students to be safe, respectful and responsible users of technology at school and at home.
