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:
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.

Empowering students to become lifelong learners and providing them with the skills to face future challenges resourcefully and creatively is critical. It’s not about using digital tools to support outdated education strategies and models; it’s about tapping into technology’s potential to amplify human capacity for collaboration, creativity and communication.
