Technology

Quail Run Elementary School provides an enriched learning environment that promotes the use of technology and supplies the resources to integrate technology into the daily educational curriculum of our students, thereby achieving or exceeding the SRVUSD and National Educational Technology Standards.

Our teachers are independent users of technology, utilizing computers and presentation equipment in the teaching process to engage and motivate students to become active participants in their education.

Project-based computer lessons are developed and delivered collaboratively by classroom teachers and technology instructional specialists, focusing on the use of technology as a transparent tool to enhance understanding of core curriculum subject matter for math, science, social studies and language arts.

In the classroom, teachers engage students using projectors and document cameras to deliver instruction enhanced with images, videos and online interactive visuals. 

Students learn to use electronic research tools such as the internet, online library catalog, and subscription based multimedia sites to gather and analyze information. Internet safety and ethical issues are addressed beginning in 1st grade. All students use Microsoft Office software (Word, Excel, Publisher and PowerPoint) as well as other educational software such as __________ Harcourt in addition to our on-line curriculum supplements.
 
A staff technology committee meets regularly to continually assess our ever changing technology needs. For all our technology needs (hardware, software, supplies, maintenance costs, subscriptions, replacement of old and failing equipment, etc.) generous parent donations in addition to our Education Fund and Site Council help provide financial support for our program. Together, we provide an environment where students, teachers, administrators, support staff, parents, and our local community work together to ensure a quality academic program supported by the wise and meaningful use of instructional technology.
