Welcome to Lincoln K8!
I am the Primary Technology Teacher for grades Kindergarten, First, Second, Third, and Fourth grades. Your child will come to the computer lab once or twice a week. There, they will learn how to use our HP All-in-One computers, our laptops, and our iPad tablets. Their classroom teacher can check out laptops, electronic books, and tablets-- electronic devices that support your child's learning.
21st century learning includes student testing online. There will be times throughout the year when I will go to your child's classroom, because other classes are taking tests on the computers in the lab.
Our school has been blessed with great technology resources. Most of our computers were purchased with Federal tax dollars, through Title One funding. We are fortunate that the American people are supportive of public education. In every classroom, you will see a SMART Board, an interactive white board that does far more than the old-fashioned black board! You may also see a document camera, a teacher computer, and student computers.
In January and February, our students are testing in the computer labs, taking NorthWest Evaluation Association (NWEA) assessments. I am traveling to each classroom. I use iPads with the Kindergarten. I use Streams (small HP Notebooks/laptops) with 1st -4th grades. Each class has different activities on these computers.
I encourage each parent to go back to the Lincoln K8 home page, and click on the right hand side link that says "5 Essentials Survey for Parents." Please take this survey soon, before February 15, 2019. Thank you!
