These three concepts are the foundation for instructional technology at ESK. As students develop skills for using technology to empower learning, they begin to share ideas and strategies with the greater community. Combining conceptual knowledge and idea sharing, students are then well-prepared to use technology in creative and innovate ways to demonstrate learning, ingenuity and problem-solving skills.
Each classroom teacher uses an interactive ViewSonic Viewboard in daily instruction. Kindergarten and first grade classes use iPads to support language, reading, science and math skills development. Third through fifth grades use 1:1 Chromebooks, which can instantly turn each classroom into a tech lab.
It is the mission of the Library Media Center to foster a love of literature among our students, to serve the information needs of the entire school community and to ensure that the students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.
“We use technology to explain complex concepts to our students. They are able to participate and fully understand the lesson.”
— Parri Thurman, 2nd Grade Teacher
