My name is Ms. Minello and I am the Technology Coordinator as well as the Video Club advisor. This is my 14th year at Alvah Scott and the technology just keeps getting better. Our school is now equipped with 2 Chromebase computer labs for the children to utilize, in the library and the P2 Lab. Our 2nd thru 6th graders are 1:1 with Dell and HP Chromebooks. This technology will help them to prepare for middle school and give them more opportunities in the technology field as they enter high school. The programs that we use are Imagine Learning and Imagine Math, KidBizz, IXL, Typing Tutorial, Scantron Reading and Math, SmartyAnts and Big Brains, as well as other internet programs. It is my pleasure to serve Alvah Scott in all its technology needs.
The Kindergarten and first grade classrooms share Apple iPads to use in centers and for additional computer time. The children enjoy using the apple devices, and this will prepare them for the next grade level.
As technology moves forward so must all of us with learning new devices and software etc. It is my goal to assist staff and students to become both knowledgable and comfortable using technology here at Alvah Scott and in the future.
