Welcome back Roosevelt Families to the 2016-2017 School Year! We are proud to announce that Roosevelt has implemented a 1-1 technology plan for all of our TK-5th grade classes. All students will have their own device to use on a daily basis at school. Technology devices have been distributed by grade level. Grades TK through 1st are using i Pads, and 2nd grade through 5th are using chrome books. Along with Teacher Professional Development, Roosevelt offers great programs and learning applications that will enhance student achievement through the implementation of technology in the classroom. Not only will the technology tie into the core curriculum, but it will also have many supporting applications that students will use to enhance their learning and prepare them for the 3rd-5th CAASPP assessment at the end of the year. Some examples of adaptive learning programs we are using, are the Dream-box program and the ALEKS program. These two math programs are designed to be adaptable for all types of learners. This means that all students will learn at their own pace and they will be able review and practice missed skills in order to reach mastery. In addition, these programs challenge students to achieve higher levels of learning. All students will continue to use Accelerated Reader and Raz Kids to further develop Reading Literacy skills and Reading Fluency. We are very excited to provide the 1-1 technology ratio for all students. We are looking forward to a great year.
