Technology, along with 21st century skills, plays an important role in the lives of students today. Our school is committed to improve student achievement in the use of technology through its integration in all subject areas. Our teachers encourage their students to use technology tools available in our school and, particularly, to use them to present ideas, enhance creativity, organize thoughts and communicate effectively in a variety of ways.
Our goal is to give our students the knowledge, attitude and skills necessary to become computer literate and to be safe online.
During their time at RC MacDonald Elementary students will have opportunities to engage in coding and problem solving using Sphero, Micro Bits and Mine Craft Education.
All families will be introduced to our online learning platforms at the beginning of the school year. In the event there is remote learning we will be using Microsoft Teams and /or Fresh Grade as well as supplementary online subscriptions to support students with ongoing practise in literacy and numeracy skills.
