About the Technology Lab
New Market's Technology Lab is ran with a mobile cart filled with 28 Dell Chromebooks, all of which are used multiple times throughout the day by all grade levels. K-2 students visit the lab every other week, while 3-5 students visit weekly. During their hour of instruction students master basic computer skills while using Web 2.0 tools to create a variety of projects directly related to the Common Core Curriculum. In addition, we publish our projects to the Technology Lab website for others to view, as well as present them to our peers and to other students and teachers around the world through Google Hangouts and Skype. We also explore computer coding and programming, beginning at the Kindergarten grade level, in order to introduce more children to the area of Computer Science, using robotics, stop motion animation, and circuits. The Technology Lab is always an exciting place for our students to learn, share, and create with one another! In the lab we believe that every student can excel and shine through their creativity!
