At Del Mar Pines, technology is used to transform learning and teaching. With 1:1 access to iPads (K-3) and MacBook Air’s (3-6), every student has the chance to experience technology-enhanced learning.
Technology class is one hour a week of project-based curriculum covering the fundamental skills of technology. Our technology curriculum is based on the International Society for Technology Education Standards with a focus on helping students become empowered learners, digital citizens, problem solvers, and global collaborators. Some technology skills students learn include:
- Internet safety
- Digital Citizenship
- Research & Information Fluency
- Graphic Design
- Website Design
- Computer Programming (coding)
- Graphs, Flowcharts, & Spreadsheets
- Word Processing
- e-Book Publishing
- Multi Media Presentations
- iMovie, Animation, & Stop Motion
The Del Mar Pines Technology program also produces several special events throughout the school year to further inspire our students with computer science: Hour of Code, Third Grade Film Festival, Typing Challenge Month, and the DMP Arcade–a student-friendly arcade with games coded by our own students.
